5-year-old girl killed by suicide jumper in South Korea

A 5-year-old South Korean girl was killed when a man who jumped from his 11th floor apartment landed on top of her, police said.

The incident took place Wednesday in Busan, a port city in the southern part of the country.

The girl had left her apartment building with her parents when a 38-year-old tenant made his suicide plunge, said Busan Police officer Kim Gil-san.

The man died on the spot. He apparently was being treated for depression, police said.
