Man jumps to death after girlfriend insists on shopping

A man jumped to his death in a shopping mall in China after a spat with his girlfriend, who insisted they continue shopping, UK newspaper Daily Mail reported.

Tao Hsiao, 38, wanted to go home following his girlfriend's 5-hour shopping spree at the Golden Eagle Shopping Complex in the city of Xuzhou but when she insisted they go to another shop, he committed suicide, reports said.

An eye witness at the mall 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 spate ended when the man threw down the shopping bags he was carrying and jumped seven stories down, toppling over Christmas decorations before hitting the floor.

 Emergency services arrived soon but Tao did not survive the severe impact of the fall

A shopping spokesman said: '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.'
