Father Killed After Student Jumping To His Death Lands On Him

A civil servant in South Korea was killed when a student leaping to his death hit him.

Yang Dae-jin, 39, was walking home with his pregnant wife and five-year-old son when he was struck in the head by a student who had jumped from the 20th floor of an apartment building last Tuesday.

He sustained severe injuries and later died in the hospital. The student died instantly, according to The Independent.

The police are considering charging the student with accidental homicide in order that Yang’s family can get compensation. They have however forgiven the student whom they consider another victim of South Korea’s “mercilessly competitive society.”
