How very sad. People rarely fall from Teville Gate (nor any other multi-storey car park); they jump. R.I.P

Or, sometimes, they are pushed. It is certainly difficult to fall over a 1.5 metre high wall, though

I cannot believe you actually gave 'The Worthing Page' the credit for the photo. Using someone's death to promote a Facebook page is DISGUSTING. You should all be ashamed of yourselves and if you had an ounce of sympathy for the poor persons family you would remove it. Unbelievable.

For anyone who wants to see how wrong this is please do head on over to 'The Worthing Page' and see 'Ben' from The Argus ask to use the photo and then for one of the admins 'Tom', to ask for the photo to be credited to his ridiculous Facebook page in the hope of getting a few more people to click on it to increase his 'likes' and ultimately his advertising revenue.

it is standard practise to quote your source. you have no evidence to suggest he asked to be 'advertised' as you put it.
someone has died at Teville Gate, a recurring problem, just think about the issue. for some reason argus readers like to pick on the most ridiculous things.
i hope the family have support in time of grief and hopefully the local services will be able to provide help to those most at risk currently to prevent the frequency of these occurrences.

What horrors have occurred in the last two days in the Sussex area - the student who got run over in Lewes rd and now this fatality in Worthing. Very sad indeed.

Nathan - If you're really that interested please re read my post and maybe head on over to the Worthing Page as suggested and you will see one of the admins clearly ask for the Worthing page to be 'credited'. If you can give any other reason they would want to be 'credited' other than to get more people to visit their page and therefore increase their traffic which will lead to being able to charge more money for people to advertise with them, then please explain away. Having lost a member of my family in a similar circumstance (falling from a fire escape in their case), I think I am well within my rights to stand up for what is right. And to ask to have a ridiculous social network page 'credited' is INCREDIBLY insulting to the victims family. Show some respect and stop sticking up for the media and jumped up nobodies who administrate a local Facebook page!
