Last week, a young man suspected to be a burglar was spotted in a high rise in Mumbai India. As he stood on the ledge on the 4th floor, everyone cajoled begged advised...did everything to take a safe route to get off the ledge. But our man chose to jump off the ledge...from the 4th floor.

There was enough time for the police & fire department to set up a safety net and he still decided to jump rather than climb down or simply go in a window. That's more than enough for me. Thanks, Vani!

Thanks for the story - I'm torn on this one - he's a criminal, and we don't know why he was avoiding them
