Harassed boyfriend jumps to his death after girlfriend insists on going into another clothes shop

Now this story could have a better ending.

See the part in the highlights where it says “…chucked the bags to the floor and jumped over the balcony?” Well it could just as easily have read, “…chucked the bags to the floor and WALKED AWAY FROM THE STORE” had he been able to contain his temper.

Well, I guess that is just one more person who will not be seeing 2014. Sympathies to the family and girlfriend (she will need it when his family learn what transpired).

A man jumped to his death after a furious row  with his girlfriend who insisted they go into another clothes  shop.

CCTV shows Tao Hsiao, 38, escorting his  girlfriend around a shopping mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province,  east China.

After five hours Tao finally had enough and  demanded to go home.

 Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying  they already had more bags than they could carry, but she insisted on going into  one more shop where the was a special offer on shoes.

An eyewitness said: ‘He told her she already  had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime  and it was pointless buying any more.

‘She started shouting at him accusing him of  being a skinflint and of spoiling Christmas, it was a really heated  argument.’

The shouting match ended when the man chucked  the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing  into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven  stories below causing shocked shoppers to  flee in panic.

Emergency services arrived at the scene but  Tao was killed immediately from the impact of the fall.

A  shopping spokesman said: ‘His body was removed fairly quickly.

‘He actually landed on one of the stalls  below and then fell to the floor  so although the store was damaged it meant he  didn’t hit anybody.

‘This is a tragic incident, but this time of  year can be very stressful for many people.’
