BANGKOK - A man suffering from depression has jumped to his death from a three-storey shopping mall building and a woman standing below was seriously injured when he landed on her, police said. 

Police said Komsan Jupamattang, 36, leapt from the top of a shopping mall in Bangkok's Bangkae district on Thursday. His head was turned around 180 degrees by the impact of his landing.

Just before the man's body made it to the ground it hit Issariyaporn Pongkaew, 28, who was buying a handbag from a vendor near the building.
