There had to have been a shorter building that this guy could have jumped off to get the same affect…
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A man threw himself off the world’s tallest building in Dubai, its developer said, plummeting to his death in the first suicide from Burj Khalifa tower.
Emaar Properties, the owner of the towering structure, said in a brief statement that “an incident involving a male”
was reported at the tower’s site at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.
“The concerned authorities have confirmed that it was a suicide, and we are awaiting the final report,” Emaar’s statement also said. It did not elaborate further.
Local reports quoted security officials as saying the man fell from the 147th floor of the 2,717 foot-tall tower and landed on a deck on the 108th floor.
Reports on the websites of the Gulf News and 7 Days newspapers say the man — who is believed to be in his twenties and of South Asian background — jumped following a dispute with his company. Police said statements from co-workers indicated that his vacation request had been turned down.
R.I.P. bruh, it didn’t have to end like that, there’s always a better way…
