Another young man has narrowly survived death after jumping off from Leisure center at Garden City along Yusuf Lule Road in Kampala. The incident occurred at around 12:20pm this afternoon.
According to eye witnesses, the young man believed to be in his 20’s, dived off the first floor of the leisure center and crashed on the carrier of a vehicle registration number UAS 797K that was parked below the building.
He was rushed to Mulago National Referral hospital by a Good Samaritan in a vehicle number UAN 746V accompanied by a police officer who was guarding the premises. Amit Talreja, the General Manager of Golf Course Holdings LTD who reportedly called for emergency, he was mesmerized by the attitude of the onlookers who were simply struggling for space to take pictures instead of helping the dying man.
Emilian Kayima, Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, says they didn’t find any identified on the man apart from a handkerchief in his pocket. Kayima says they have commenced investigation on the incident, saying the young man will face charges of attempted suicide once he recovers.
The incident comes barely a month after another young man identified as Mustafa Lule jumped off Mabirizi Complex on Jinja Road in Kampala on September 03.
Just like today’s incident Lule fell on the vehicle that was parked below the building and was rushed to Mulago National Hospital for treatment. On 09th December 2014, 25 year-old Deus Kabasirye also leaped to his death off Mabirizi Complex after being rejected by his lover.
