Gulfnews says it was at JLT. Either way quite tragic

No suicide at Burj Khalifa, say Dubai Police | GulfNews.com

I have read the story but it doesn't quite add up.

Can an adult actually fit through the gap on the viewing platform?

One article claims she landed on the terrace of a crowded restaurant. If it was witnessed by so many people it is not odd that nothing has slipped out about it. Even if the man who was seeing has a lot of wasta.


I am not claiming it didn't happen but it's just a bit odd.

not forgetting the shape of the burj means that if you jumped on at the 140th floor, you'd probably land on the 100th and not the 3rd. Much like the laborer that landed on the 120th ish.

Given that the tower is filmed all day long by someone, I'm sure a quick bit of you-tube research could find something interesting, if there was anything to be found.

The Daily Mail detests Dubai, Qatar and everything connected therewith. How they can publish such fictional nonsense amazes me. Emaar should sue.

Why does the Daily Mail hate Dubai ? Is the Emirate not sufficiently pro-Zionist ?

Indeed, very strange.

Nothing from her family?

The Mail just goes for the juiciest slant on news to reel in people. I don't see them as particularly against the GCC.
