(Newser) – A tragedy turned horrific in South Korea on Wednesday, when a man's suicide attempt ended up killing a young girl, too. The man, described as age 38 or 39, jumped from the 11th floor of his apartment building in Busan, and landed on the five-year-old, reports CNN. He died on impact; the girl suffered a skull fracture and later died at a hospital. She had been walking with her parents, who were both uninjured. Police say the man was being treated for depression, though the AP reports he left no note.
