Eiffel Tower Suicide

Paris police say that a 25-year-old man snuck pass security measures and climbed the Eiffel Tower before jumping from the landmark to his death. The man climbed the tower’s western pillar after it was closed to the public, and was approaching the third and highest level when rescue climbers made it to the scene. They tried to talk to him but he jumped instead. He landed on the tower’s second floor and died soon after midnight Monday. R.I.P.
