A man (25), accused of groping a girl at a crowded beach, but who denied the charge, ended up dying after being thoroughly impaled in an attempt at flight from his questioners.
He was taken into custody after one of the girls in question reported him: “He touched my breasts and stuff”.
Whilst police were questioning him over this, after five minutes he became agitated and screamed “I didn’t do it!”, and then leapt out of the second floor window, which was open, whereupon he fell onto the iron railings pictured, now ominously bent, skewering his neck. He was rushed to hospital, but later died of blood loss.
The young ladies who accused him of this, a group of three high school classmates, were playing with a rubber ring in the sea, when, they claim, a man swam up and groped one, then swam off.
The trio then took it upon themselves to search for the culprit, and upon finding a likely suspect after an hour of searching, reported him to police. That suspect was the man in question, who was visiting the beach with his wife and a friend for a spot of relaxation.
There were said to be some 45,000 people on the beach at the time.
