A Chinese businessman is fighting for his life after a woman fell to her death in a shopping mall - and landed on top of him.

Yu Li, 42, was shopping with his three-year-old son in a shopping mall in Changsha, Hunan province, in Southern China, when he was hit on the head by the unidentified woman as she plummeted from the fifth floor.

The man had gone to the shopping centre to buy his son a present for the Chinese New Year.

Was she committing suicide, or fell accidentally or what?

That is part of the investigation from a quote within the article.

I thought it was just the guys over there who jump off balconies in the malls.

The story from China about a guy jumping to his death in a mall to avoid shopping was a hoax.

Do you have a source? I’ve seen many believable sources for that story, but I can’t find any retractions.

I know of a couple of cons who got all high on pot and attempted to escape prison.
First one got down, then the second one landed on the first guy killing that person.

It happens I guess.

Almost all of the sources for that story were from the same article.

At the world trade center on 9/11 a Priest giving last rites to a person who had leapt from the fire was hit and killed by another jumper.

The jumpers might be too fixated to read.

How about on the ground floor putting up 'Falling People Zone' signs?

“At the world trade center on 9/11 a Priest giving last rites to a person who had leapt from the fire was hit and killed by another jumper.”

That was debunked; he had a heart attack. I believe it can be seen in the Frenchmen’s film (the fireman documentary they were making on 9/11); his body is intact, as though sleeping.

Red China has a big problem with suicides; employers now want contracts signed attesting that you won’t do it if hired. Their industrialization is taking a toll on their slaves.

One of the main arguments against guns is that they lead to suicide. Articles like this are the best response. Without a gun, the suicidal people frequently take others with them. Many suicides are by car, where the person drives into the path of an oncoming large vehicle. Better done with a gun.

[eyeroll] Sounds like our idiot gun-grabbers are rubbing off on the Chinese.

“Yes, I promise not to commit suicide. On pain of death! “

I think they had such a trained worker shortage with their rapid industrialization; I believe they tried shaming people into “staying alive”...
