News24xx.com - Early on Tuesday, August 8 2017 morning, a woman committed suicide by leaping from the 102nd floor of the tallest building in Hong Kong.


The 118-floor International Commerce Centre in West Kowloon is the 10th tallest building in the world. The top floors house a Ritz-Carlton hotel where the 29-year-old was staying the night on Tuesday.


The woman, who lived in Kowloon, managed to get down to the mechanical floor between the 101st and 102nd floor and open a fire door at around 3:00 a.m., police said.


On the way down to the ground, she hit a window on a lower floor before landing near a taxi stand where she was found by a cab driver.


The woman was declared dead at the scene by paramedics. Police found no suicide note and no evidence of foul play.


This is the first suicide in the history of the 484-meter-tall skyscraper which was completed in 2010.
