(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.

Call for an immediate ban on buildings taller than 10 stories.

I like to believe that Dante got it right and that now that piece of trash is anguishing in the 3rd level of hell as demons cast lots for his organs, to be devoured over a 1000 year period as he watches and feels it.
