World's Tallest Building Has Its First Suicide

Sadly, tall things will always attract jumpers. The world's tallest building, Dubai's Burj Khalifa, got its first suicide today after a man jumped from 147th floor and landed on a terrace at the 108th floor. The 163-floor Burj Khalifa was completed last January.

Random jumper facts: Over 30 people have killed themselves by jumping off the Empire State Building over the years, and in December 1979, a woman named Elvita Adams jumped off the 86th floor only to be blown back into the 85th, landing on a ledge and fracturing her hip, but still alive.
