MEXICO – A 28-year-old man committed suicide by throwing himself into the void from the top of historic monument Los Arcos in Querétaro.
The events occurred at around 4:00pm on Friday afternoon. Despite efforts from rescue staff on scene trying to dissuade him from letting go, the man threw himself 35 meters into the void.
He was transported to a nearby hospital in critical condition with injuries to his lower extremities, pelvis and thorax, with some reports starting to claim he has now passed away from his wounds.
On October 17th, another man climbed at the top of Los Arcos and threatened to throw himself, but was rescued by intervention teams on scene.
