What the whaaa???
This is both tragic and EXTREMELY hard to believe, for obvious reasons!
But apparently it's true, as reports tell the tragic tale of a man identified as Tao Hsiao, who went shopping with his girlfriend over the weekend at the Golden Eagle Shopping Complex in Xuzhou. After a plethora of expensive purchases, she wanted to check out one more shoe store. As a response to her suggestion, the man allegedly jumped over a barrier from 7 stories up and landed in the mall’s atrium.
He crashed into a display counter, and it’s believed that he died on impact.
An eyewitness described the situation as follows:
