    Man jumps off building, hits passerby

    BANGKOK - A man suffering from depression has jumped to his death from a three-storey shopping mall building and a woman walking below was seriously injured when he landed on her, police said on Thursday.

    Police said Komsan Jupamattang, 36, leapt from the top of a shopping mall in Bangkok's Bangkae district. His head was turned around 180 degrees by the impact of his landing.

    Just before the man's body made it to the ground it hit Issariyaporn Pongkaew, 28, who was buying a handbag from a vendor near the building.

    Ms Issariyaporn was knocked out and suffered a broken back. She was rushed to Kasemrad Hospital.

    Police said Komsan parked his motorcycle in the parking lot on the third floor of the building before he plunged to his death.

    Police suspected the man suffered from depression. They found five packets for anti-depression medication with his name on it in his clothes.

    The body was sent for a post-mortem examination at Siriraj hospital.

    Police will summon his relatives for questioning.

They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    Nice details in this one. Head twisted 180 degrees, broken back, motorcy parked on third floor, shopping for a bag, medication unused, suspected depression. Nice stuff these articles.

    Very unlucky lady. Hope it is one of those back breaks that are recoverable.

    The rag doll cliche is so true. I saw a jumper actually jump in Canberra once and her legs were so twisted it didn't look real.
