This guy was hopping mad about the economic situation in Romania and jumped to the conclusion that he would do something about it.
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) – Romania’s government survived a no-confidence motion in Parliament on Thursday in a session overshadowed by a man who flung himself from the chamber’s balcony, apparently in protest over the government austerity measures. His injuries were not life-threatening. (Scroll down for photos)
A loud thud reverberated in the chamber after the man, Adrian Sobaru — identified by the country’s public television station as one of its engineers — jumped from a height of about 7 meters (23 feet). He hit the benches shortly after Prime Minister Emil Boc greeted the lawmakers. No one else was injured.
Boc looked startled and rushed over to Sobaru, along with other lawmakers, before Speaker Mircea Geoana briefly postponed the session.
Boc called the incident “a tragedy that shocked me,” and appealed for calm “in these tough times.”
Peep the handywork of the photographer who caught the whole jump in freeze frame.
