46-year-old man prepared to jump from a balcony ledge on the top floor of one of Sydney's busiest shopping centres in Bondi Junction today.
It was a scenario all too common in Australia, which has one of the highest suicide rates in the Western world.
The final moments of the man's life, which unfolded before hundreds of lunchtime shoppers, including children, at Westfield shopping centre in one of richest Sydney's suburb - Bondi Junction have raised questions about whether shopping centre management handled the situation effectively.
Few minutes latter the man died.
This is also question for designers of public spaces.
