Another death at Auckland's central cinema complex

A man fell to his death yesterday at Auckland's Village SkyCity Cinemas, landing just metres away from people eating in the food court below.

The man died about 3.45pm after falling to the ground floor food court from a bridge on level 6 of the Queen St entertainment complex.
The barriers along each 'bridge' were raised after a similar incident several years back. I'd be interested to know the circumstances of this death - was he sitting on the ledge? (hard to do as angled towards bridge).

I suppose it's not inconceivable that the guy committed suicide?

That's what I've been hearing today.

Yuk!

I've eaten there many times and been to Imax. It is seriously high there and that's bloody frightening to think you could see that sort of thing.

It all complies with the Buiding Code, always has. I suspect that the owner will be put to expense just the same by OSH. That's what happened last time.

They seldom report a suicide as a suicide. Most likely he fell because he jumped.
