This has got to be one of the best filmed suicides by jumping from a highrise. The cameraman took the front row seat and filmed it all on camera, including the landing which happened right in front of him.
I don’t have much in terms of backstory, but it happened in Russia and when the video starts, there is already what appears to be a woman dead on the ground. It’s as if the woman had jumped first, and then the man could not bear the grief and followed. The people on the ground, including the cameraman try to argue him out of jumping.
At 1:10, the cameraman starts counting storeys up to where the suicidal man was, and concludes that he’s on the 13th floor. Shortly after, the man jumps and bounces violently upon landing next to the woman. He missed the railing by mere inches. Had he hit it, he would have been sliced in half or decapitated.
There is a simpler solution for people who want to die but don’t know if they can do it – just go to Thailand and before you know it, you’ll be a splatter next to a hotel. You won’t even need to worry about all your life savings and belongings. Thais’ll take care of it for you too.
