Man Falls to His Death from Radio Tower in Phoenix, Arizona

This is an old gore classic which is probably closer to an accident than it is to suicide. A Phoenix, Arizona man climbed on top of a 400 feet tall radio tower. Nobody knows what possessed him to have climbed all the way up there and nobody probably will – he simply did it and while he was up there, slipped and fell to his death.

Something troubled him, but I don’t think he wanted to die. He lost his footing, but tried to regain balance by grabbing at the antenna, but the antenna was not built to support a full grown man’s weight. It was a long fall…

  1. yesss first comment…. awsome video and keep up the good work. im going to eventually have a few videos for you once i get them from a buddy.. they are of his buddy empting a 250 round ammo box into this terrorist head and body. the other is of him clearing a hut and him shooting a guy who was inside helmit cam of course

    1. Tell your ‘buddy’ not to bother. Not unless he wants to be thrown in prison anyway.

      Defiling bodies in times on a battlefield is illegal under the Geneva Convention. And could cost your ‘buddy’ his job and his freedom.

      A 250 round box of ammo huh?

      That must be his own equipment as they aren’t provided to the QMs of any NATO or Allied armed force.

          1. Is not illegal to engage in terrorist and murderous activites. You play with the bull you get the horns. Besides why should be the only ons who play by the rules? Fuck em’ theres too many fucking rules. Thr ROE are a joke. This is not a conventional war and should not be fought IAW the Rules of Engagement! Fuckin ragheads should all be put to death! They love death anyways so its a win win situation.

          1. I for one am glad that someone finally learned the difference between accidental and intentional! Other websites have this guys fall listed as a suicide still rather than calling it the way it really was…an ACCIDENTAL FALL!! Although it’s obvious he climbed that tower with the intention of committing suicide…it was still a fall…

      1. Remember, it’s a Radio tower. I suspect that thing he had was some kind of gag-flag, so the competition could put pics of it on their website. No matter how lame your radio station is, there’s always some fool listener who’d do Anything for a free T-shirt!

  2. Hmm, I can’t help but think about all the effort he would have had to put into climbing all the way up there. Really, if your suicidal, why would you put all the effort into going all the way to the top, 300 feet will kill you as well as 400 feet. I mean, your fed up with life and you want to die. Hmm, I am going to scale a radio tower, wiggle around on the top while giving the antenna a lap-dance, and then fall to my death.

    I suppose he could have been contemplating the intelligence of his decision, and thus prolonged his suffering. Still, I can only imagine the rush of chemicals to the brain as you fall that long ass drop… fear, excitement, euphoria for release, regret… hmm

    1. That’s what I was thinking..

      I wonder how long it took him to reach the top and yes, It definitely seems like way too much effort to climb all that way and not go through with the suicide.

      Also, I think he was too distracted by his jacket or whatever, messing with that antenna.

      I haven’t seen this vid in awhile, great classic!

    2. It is useless to try apply logic to a man who wants to commit suicide.

      Did you know that most people that commit suicide from tall structures, drowning or hanging also take their shoes off before they do it?

      The reason?

      Their is no reason.

    1. If I knew for a fact that I was high enough up, then I’d consider being a jumper if I was suicidal, but if there was a question of it working… “WILL this fall kill me?” No… Hell no. I think I’d need to be on something like the Empire State Building to feel comfortable enough.

        1. I’m a pussy when it comes to heights too Kels.
          Wasn’t like that as a kid… developed as I got older.

          I don’t think I could ever even bring myself to go to the top of the Empire State building Future… I had issues with the CN tower in Toronto – well, until we hit the bar 😉

          1. Funny, I developed it when I got older too. Same goes for amusement rides, I used to love them, but don’t anymore.. I don’t trust the inbreds working the controls and the whole heights issue.

          2. Kels: That’s the same reason I don’t go to the fair anymore. The inbred, white trash people who run the rides. If it’s not them, it’s a bunch of can’t-speak-English-if-their-lives-depended-on-it brown people (from Mexico, or South America, I’m guessing… They have a very native look.) running the show. To hell with that.

    1. @Senor Piggy -don’t forget the video of Yes “Owner of a Lonely Heart”. Guy gets pushed around by a bunch of Sheep Dogs, then runs to a courthouse roof & basically says “Enough!” as he leaps over the side. Classic…

      1. I had to look that up, just cause I love sheep dogs. Boy was I disappointed, but the animal imagery was cool. When the guy washes his face with meal worms, why don’t they use real maggots? Oh well, my favorite movie fall was from the Burt Reynolds movie, “Stick” Where the great (late) Stunt Man Dar Robinson takes a 200 foot back fall and is able to empty all six shots from his revolver.

        1. I remember that! He stunted for actor Henry Sylva. I saw that stunt on tv before the film was out. *Did’nt literally mean the animal dogs, but suits pulling him around… it’s been awhile, I sometimes remember things better than what they were.

  3. My brother climbed one at night with his Best friend just to do it…they’re crazy like that. Anyways maybe this guy did it just to do it or maybe he was dared to either way from what my brother told me the hardest part isn’t climbing up but climbing back down, being tired as fuck from getting all the way up there doesn’t help any either

      1. I can’t wait to move to another state. Preferably somewhere with medical marijuana and I can actually qualify and not be dying of AIDS or cancer. And it would be nice to live in a state with SEASONS. Every year when it hits an average high of 120 degrees I always end up questioning why the fuck people live here. By the way, I totally know where this is. Its in a Walmart shopping center and there is another tower nearby.

        1. Yeah ill be there in the winter! Fuck that summer shit. Move to Portland brothamane. You can smoke weed anywhere you want. And getting a card is easy apparently. Haha you could probably say you use marijiuana to treat your meth addiction and they’d give you the card.
