Suicide Is 3rd in 8 Days at Atlantic City Casinos

August 26, 1999|Associated Press

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A German tourist jumped to his death off a 10-story casino parking garage Wednesday in the third such suicide in Atlantic City in eight days.

The man, whose name was not immediately released, resisted the pleas of a security guard who tried to talk him down from the ledge of the Resorts Atlantic City garage. He plummeted about 100 feet.

On Aug. 17, a gambler who had lost $87,000 jumped to his death off a Trump Plaza roof. On Monday, a dealer at Caesars Atlantic City Hotel Casino committed suicide by leaping off the casino's parking garage.

It was not clear if the most recent victim had been gambling. He left no suicide note.
