In a devastating incident, a 23-year-old man named Abdulrazak Kassim lost his life after jumping from the fourth floor of Suhufi Palace Hotel in Bondeni, Mombasa.

The episode unfolded on Monday morning, resulting in Kassim's admission to the Coast General Referral Hospital, where he succumbed to internal injuries in his head and stomach, as confirmed by Mombasa County Police Commander Stephen Matu.
