Sad times and obviously because he was sad about something which he couldn't cope with. I just wish that services could be commenced to assist any other person to have somewhere to turn to in a time of need. RIP fella.

Do you have more information than is in the article?

How do you assume that the person committed suicide?
There are a multitude of reasons someone (of that age) could accidentally fall from that particular car park.

Lets not judge eh!?

This article is very unclear. Did he fall because he was having a heart attack? Or did that happen after he fell? Come on Argus - please

i would suggest that you actually go and look at the car park the part from where he "fell" is actually an easy place to fall from and a 69 year old ... NOT really an age of most common suicide , falling from a building could easily bring on tramer including a cardiac arrest . so lets all say with deepest sympathy to the family and lets hope that some thought is given to .... well everything i am still thinking about why people cant legally commit suicide maybe they can have a day in the I360 for bungee jumping without any safety measures

Its not promoting suicide,perhaps the opposite highlighting the need for more help in the community.The facts are not out in this case but there is no where for people so desperate to turn to.
