[FLASHBACK: Jilted Bride Attempts Suicide in Wedding Dress… ]
A 38 year old Chinese man by the name of Tao Hsiao, jumped to his death after he and his girlfriend got into it at a shopping mall
Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on going into one more shop where there was a special offer on shoes.
That one shop was apparently the straw that broke the boyfriend’s back…
According to DailyMailUK the girlfriend ‘started shouting at him accusing him of being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated argument.’
The shouting match apparently ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven storeys below causing shocked shoppers to flee in panic.
Emergency services arrived at the scene but Tao was killed immediately from the impact of the fall.
A spokesman for the shopping center stated:
His body was removed fairly quickly.
He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn’t hit anybody.
This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.
The moral of this story? Christmas may be stressful but shopping for shoes with your significant other will make you want to kill yourself.
