(ANSA) - Pisa, May 15 - A 40-year-old woman has committed suicide by jumping from the fourth ring of the Leaning Tower of Pisa after climbing over a two-meter high protective barrier, police said.

The woman, who was originally from Rome and lived in the northern Tuscan town of Pisa with her husband, left no note before leaping to her death on Monday evening.

Four people have killed themselves by jumping from the monument in the last two years, all of them women, police said.

It's a sure fire way to get in to the news I guess. I think a lot of people just want to be remembered or have an impact. Um pun not intended...

Theres only so much you can do to bar people from property who either want to enter or as in this case attempt to commit suicide.Had it not been here given her apparent state of mind, it would have been somewhere else.Its just sad in this age of technology that people take such life ending decisions sometimes over very trivial things.

Someone willing to end there life will find away, all you can do have reasonable safe guards (to prevent accidents for the one's that are not).
There's Aokigahara in Japan (Japan's suicide forest) (http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Aokigahara).

I just don't understand people who feel it's best to end their lives.

I care more for the people she has left behind by commiting suicide instead of talking about her problems. Suicide is such a selfish way to go and I have no sympathy for those who decide it's the only option.

Ah, but you are forgetting, that many who take their life, are feeling unwanted and unloved. ;)

Many are truly 'alone'.
