Agence France-Presse (AFP), via InterAksyon.com, reports that "a man committed suicide by climbing up the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, France and jumping to his death."

 

The report revealed: "Police spotted the man climbing the structure of the tower around 11:30 p.m. (21:30 GMT) on Sunday, June 24. They evacuated the tower, sealed off the area and tried to negotiate with the man, who spoke English. The negotiations failed and the man jumped from between the tower’s second level and the top, a height of between 125 and 324 meters."

 

The report also quoted a police source who noted that suicides by jumping from the tower "happen frequently enough, but it is rare for someone to be able to climb so high."
