Nairobi man jumps off 7 floors in attempted suicide

Narrow escape for man

Diamond Plaza building, Parklands, Nairobi

A man on Thursday attempted to commit suicide after he jumped off the 7th floor of the Diamond Plaza building in Parklands Nairobi.

The man whose identity is yet to be established, landed on top of a car that was parked near the premises.

The roof of the car was seriously damaged during the incident that left the man very fortunate.

In October, a manager at the Price Water Coopers company committed suicide after he jumped from the company’s building.

Domestic arguments

The manager identified as Stephen Mumbo jumped off the rooftop of the building located along Waiyaki Way in Westlands Nairobi.

Reports had stated that Mumbo had been alive after the incident and was rushed to the Aga Khan where he passed on.

“He was an Assistant Manager of Executory and Forensic Investigations at the company,” remarked Muchiri.

Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri stated that the case was indeed a suicide one.

Further reports pointed out that domestic arguments were the reason behind why the man took his life.
