Clearly this was more than attention-seeking... he actually jumped. Strange that he decided to do it in France...

Zeese rude English! They come to our country! They drink out wine! They eat out cheese! They make messes on our sidewalk!!

If he had the guts to climb that high, why didn't he have the courage to face life?

Sadly there will probably now be copy-cats by people needing an idea. Cheers, mate.

There have been approximately 369 suicide attempts on the Eiffel Tower, at least 340 have been successful.

I had no idea that the Eyefull Tower attracted so many suicidal folk, but so does the Golden Gate Bridge out in San Francisco, and I hope this does not catch on on our local Tokyo Sky Tree! Anyway, RIP British dude.

Disturbing.. disgusting people.

Maybe because his problems did not have a thing to do with courage? Simplifications and slogans are not really much help.

I am waiting for some ideas on how the French authorities are uncaring about suicide or otherwise fumbling the ball and should make it impossible to climb the tower and jump from it, but oh, wait, this in France, not Japan.

Why not just LEGALIZE suicide and keep the sidewalks around the EyeFull Tower nice and clean of this kind of horrible incident and heck legalize it here in Japan too so we can get from point A to point B on time instead of having to wait for the authorities to clean up the horrible messes from all of the suicides that go on Japan's train tracks?? But I feel so sorry for the parents of this British fellow.
