Harare Man Jumps Off Tanganyika Building, Miraculously Survives

In a nothing-short-of-a-miracle incident, a distressed man survived a suicide attempt by jumping from the top of Tanganyika Building on 3rd Street and Kwame Nkrumah Avenue in Harare on Tuesday.

The man, identified as Mugove Chizutu was lucky to survive the jump from the 8th floor.

The impact was absorbed by the roofing of a small building structure below, which broke the man’s fall. Firefighters rescued the man, who was taken to the hospital in critical condition but alive.

“We failed to grab him because his legs were sweaty”, said the eyewitness.
