A man jumped to his death after having a furious row with his girlfriend at a shopping mall in China.
According to Dailymail, Tao Hsiao, 38, had escorted his girlfriend to a shopping mall in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, east China. After five hours Tao finally had enough and demanded to go home.
Eyewitnesses say he could be heard saying they already had more bags than they could carry, but his girlfriend insisted on going into one more shop where the was a special offer on shoes.
An eyewitness said:
'He 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 shouting match ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony, smashing into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven stories below causing shocked shoppers to flee in panic.
Emergency services arrived at the scene but Tao was killed immediately from the impact of the fall.
A shopping spokesman said:
'His body was removed fairly quickly. 'He actually landed on one of the stalls below and then fell to the floor so although the store was damaged it meant he didn't hit anybody. This is a tragic incident, but this time of year can be very stressful for many people.'
There are moments in history when the world stands still: the passing of Nelson Mandela was one of those occasions.
So, to honour him, football stars Didier Drogba and Emmanuel Eboue decided to display their tributes to Mandela following their 2-0 win against SB Elagizspor last Friday.
Drogba removed his shirt to reveal an under shirt that said “Thank You Madiba”; while Eboue's t-shirt read “Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela”.
However, the disciplinary committee of the Turkish Football Federation thought very differently about their act and has summoned the Ivorians to mete out some form of 'punishment' to the pair.
Their reason? - TFF forbids players from displaying political slogans and messages during football matches.
So, the Turkish FA (TFF) are planning to summon the pair to appear before the Professional Football Discipline Committee because they had not sought prior permission to display their messages.
Nonetheless, Drogba, 35, has responded on Instagram, saying that regardless of any sanction he may face, he would do it "again and again."
After arriving in a hot pink Lamboghini, the rapper strolled into Philippe restaurant in Bev Hills last night where she partied with friends.
The sweet treat read "Shake your ... for Nicki".

I am a half-caste and as a child, there was no colour difference- you are just happy with where you are and who you are with. Then, Ghanaians accepted people for who they are. However, I am being told now that I am receiving more favours because of my fair complexion. It seems people now have issues with coloured people
