(Scroll down for video) A suicidal man who jumped to his death killed another innocent girl during his death plunge, according to a statement released by police in South Korea.
South Korean police said that the suicidal man jumping to his death killed a 5-year-old girl, after falling on her as she walked with her parents outside the man's apartment building.
A police official said that the 39-year-old man died immediately after jumping from the 11th floor of the building in the southeastern port city of Busan. The girl died after a brain injury and bone fractures. The parents of the girl were not harmed.
The official said it is not clear why the man jumped. He said witnesses saw the man jumping, but there was no suicide note.
“it is one thing to commit suicide, but it is absolutely evil to jump where another innocent person can be killed. Unfortunately, the girl’s family won’t be able to seek justice for the death of their child,” Denise Henderson, 25, of Charlotte, North Carolina told YourJewishNews.com after being asked to comment on the little girl’s death.
South Korea has the highest suicide rate in the developed world.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
