Man Kills Himself After Girlfriend Won’t Stop Shopping
A sad holiday story to report. A Chinese man jumped seven stories to his death after eyewitnesses said his girlfriend refused to stop shopping.Tao Hsiao, 38, had been shopping with his girlfriend at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center in Xuzhou, China, when she asked to go to one more shoe store according to Gawker. The pair had been browsing the stores for five hours. Tao had reached his limit, and reportedly insisted that they leave immediately.
Surveillance footage then shows Tao angrily hurling the shopping bags and jumping over the railing onto the cosmetics section below. A spokesman for the shopping center says no one below was injured in this weekends incident, and that the man died instantly upon impact. No word yet on the girlfriend's reaction. Or whether she went to that last shoe store.
