Suicide Jumper Kills Cyclist

December 29th, 2008 at 10:57am

An abbreviated version of this appears on page three of this morning’s Albury-Wodonga newspaper, The Border Mail. You know that it’s a slow news day when a regional paper has to find news in China to fill page three.

Suicide jumper kills cyclist
December 28, 2008 – 8:38PM

A cyclist died after he was hit by an apparently suicidal man who jumped from the 35th floor of a nearby building in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, state media has reported.

The 52-year-old cyclist, surnamed Li, was making deliveries from his fast food restaurant when the jumper landed on him on Thursday afternoon, the official China Daily reported on Sunday.

The younger man, surnamed Liu, was allegedly a drug addict who had moved to Shenzhen from the north-eastern province of Heilongjiang, the newspaper quoted local media as saying.

He jumped from the balcony of an apartment after standing there for 12 hours, it said.

Liu died instantly and Li died later in hospital, the newspaper said in a brief report.

Whilst I doubt this will make a difference…if you dohappen to find yourself perched on a tall building and in need of a reason not to jump, just think about the people below.

    A total loser. He couldn’t even commit suicide without taking somebody else with him.

    I think it’s unfortunate that he ended up taking another life as well as his own. In my opinion, those who take their own life should not take the life of another, and should take whatever measures necessary to prevent taking the life of another.

    Just because they don’t see a way to continue with life, does not mean that they have the right to prevent someone else from enjoying their life.
