Jumping off with Osaka University students Destroyed door cover to rooftop or October 25, 7:22


On the 23rd, a high school boy jumped from the roof of a commercial facility near Hankyu Osaka Umeda Station and died, and a female college student who was involved in the death also died.

According to police investigation, when a high school student went out to the rooftop, he broke the cover that was attached to prevent the door from opening, and immediately after that, he found that he jumped off, and is investigating the details.

On the 23rd, a 17-year-old male high school student who seems to have jumped from the roof of the commercial facility "HEP FIVE" near Hankyu Osaka Umeda Station in Kita-ku, Osaka died, and Ms. Kako Furukawa (19), a university student in Kakogawa City, Hyogo Prefecture. Died as a result.

It means that I was shopping with an acquaintance on that day.

It is known that the high school boy went out to the roof through a passage dedicated to employees, but police investigation after that showed that the plastic that covered the inside key of the door to the roof was prevented from being opened by outsiders. It turned out that I had broken the cover made of.

The buzzer sounds when the door is opened, and the guards rushed in immediately, but because there was no one on the roof, the police seemed to jump off immediately after going out to the roof.

No suicide note has been found, and the police are investigating the details by listening to stories from around high school students.
