Woman dies after fall from 10th floor in Dubai Marina
Dubai Police confirmed on Wednesday that a woman fell to her death from the 10th floor of a hotel at the Marina.
The force said it is believed that the woman, who was American, committed suicide.
A CID spokesman said the 30-year-old had tried to kill herself before and was facing criminal charges for attempted suicide. Her passport had been confiscated pending the outcome of that case.
“She has two friends who were visiting her and they told us that they received a message from her explaining that she wanted to put an end to her life because she is in bad mood after her divorce,” a police official said.
“Her parents had gone to be with her after hearing about her situation and left just days before her suicide.”
The incident happened on August 25. Police received a call about the body of the woman.
“We found an SMS in her phone to her ex-husband asking him to come back and threatening to commit suicide if he didn’t,” the official added.
