British man stri-pped na-ked, climbed on ferris wheel and jumped to his death—
A British man managed to dodge security and climbed to the top of a ferris wheel in an amusement park in Italy where he stripped naked then jumped 150ft to his death.
The man, understood to be in his 50s, took his life yesterday, July 29, in the Italian holiday resort of Rimini on the Adriatic coast.
One shocked eyewitness told The Sun: ”It was horrible. He dodged security and then climbed to the very top of the wheel. It was a summer night and so the area was still packed with people. ‘Once at the top he took his clothes off and then a few minutes later he jumped and as he came down he hit several part of the wheel which had been stopped by the operator.
”It was terrible there were loads of kids still around and they all saw what happened. The police and paramedics were at the scene pretty quick but there was nothing that could be done.”
A police spokesman confirmed the incident, saying: ”We are investigating the circumstances of how a British man in his 50s was found dead at the foot of the ferris wheel in Rimini.
”A file is being prepared for the local magistrate but there is no suspicion of anyone else being involved.”
