Xuzhou - After his girlfriend refused to quit shopping, a man leaped seven floors to his death in a mall. The woman had said she wanted to look one more time around the mall in Xuzhou, China.
According to Gawker, the man was identified as Tao Hsiao, 37. He and his girlfriend had been shopping at the Golden Eagle International Shopping Center before she said she wanted to shop at one last shoe store.
The two had been inside the mall for five hours. Tao insisted they both leave immediately.
The Daily Mail reported an eyewitness saying Tao "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 two continued shouting until Tao threw his bags on the floor and leaped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations as he fell before hitting the floor seven stories below. Panicked shoppers fled in panic.
Emergency services arrived, but Tao was already dead.
According to, Tao's body was removed quickly. A store spokesman called the event a "tragic incident" and said a store was damaged, but Tao did not hit anybody.
