Suicide on the Eiffel Tower prevented

Today, the sad statistics of suicides on the Eiffel Tower nearly replenished with another episode. However, the Paris police still managed to stop a man who threatened to jump from the second floor.

Suicide on the Eiffel Tower preventedAccording to the newspaper Le Figaro, around 3:00 pm Moscow time (1:00 pm local time), one of the excursionists, climbing the stairs to the second floor, jumped over the fence and began to climb up the steel structures.

Three rescue brigades of firefighters arrived to the main sight of Paris. The sale of tickets for the Eiffel Tower was stopped, tourists were evacuated, a security perimeter was created on the ground.

After two hours of negotiations, the specialists managed to persuade the man to come down. All this time, the “troublemaker” (he turned out to be a Pole aged 25 to 30 years) threatened to rush down and asked for one thing - to send a video camera at him. Subsequently, doctors told that the young man had obvious mental health problems.

The 324-meter Eiffel Tower since its opening in 1889 is the most visited architectural monument in the world. However, it attracts not only those who want to see Paris from a bird's eye view, but also potential suicides.

Suicides happen on the Eiffel Tower with terrifying regularity - on several occasions every year. And this is despite the protective lattices installed along the perimeter of the stairs and platforms.

It clarifies ITAR-TASS, for nearly 125-year history of this symbol of France as a result of a fall from a height of about 370 people were killed (including tourists, victims of accidents).
