A man jumped into the pool at the 9/11 Memorial and jumped into a deep pit in the center of the facility. The man’s identity has not yet been revealed, although his age has been revealed as 33 years old. It didn’t take long for that moment to go viral on social media. The memorial is located right on the site of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan.
Apparently, the man was injured because he jumped from a height of 30 feet, explains the ‘Daily Mail’. It didn’t take long for the fire department to help the man. He would have said that he “did it for his father.” The man was rushed to the hospital, complaining of “back pain” and an injury to his leg. After the incident, the place remained inaccessible for a while, but soon it was reopened.
After the first observation, it was learned that the man may face a case for invasion of private property. The aforementioned media said that former police commissioner Raymond Kelly said they had to consider the “possibilities” of someone trying to commit suicide at the monument. There are mourning experts who would explain that the monument where the person threw himself can trigger a “negative psychological reaction”, especially in those who have a direct connection to the violence.
According to officials at the National Memorial and Museum in Oklahoma City, a physical reference point for a tragedy is a “gief trigger.” There was a time when there were fears that this monument would become an attraction for the release of terrorist activity.
Glenn P. Corbett, associate professor of fire sciences at John Jay College, explained that “our big concern a few years ago, in the original design, was terrorism, and now we’re adding suicide to the equation,” which means “it’s an incredibly emotional place.”
