An Asian man has committed suicide by jumping off from the 24th floor of a building in Silicon Oasis, Dubai.

An official statement was issued by Dubai Police, stating that the building’s security guard called Al Rashidiya Police Station to report that a man has fallen to his death.

Brigadier Saeed Hamad Bin Sulaiman Al Malik, Director of Al Rashidiya Police Station and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Police Station, said that the jumper tricked the watchman and claimed to be looking for an apartment to rent. He then headed to the apartment alone, took his shoes off and left his phone behind in the balcony, before jumping to his death.

The man stayed in the apartment for 12 minutes before jumping off the balcony, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Surveillance cameras and forensic reports confirmed that he committed suicide.
