    A family man, a respected patriot, an ambassador, calmly walks away from a group of colleagues in a parking garage and jumps 33 feet to his death. No motive, no sign of depression etc. There has to be more to the story than this.

    Here's the story: Ambassador leaps to death

    That is sad. Such a waste.

    I don't mean to sound ... weird... about this, but 28-33 feet seems like a risky way to end it. He could have easily survived that.

    I would say the odds of him accomplishing what he wanted were in his favor!

    One of the commenters posted that most industrial falls that lead to death occur at around the 8 meter (~26') mark.

    That's kind of surprising.

    I fell getting off the toilet once and broke three toes!! Haven't fallen asleep on a toilet since!! I woke up before my foot did and was not aware of this discrepency!
