Just think about when you were in college. And imagine that you witnessed this bizarre scene one morning as class starts.
From the Huffington Post:
PHILADELPHIA -- Police say a Philadelphia college professor killed himself by diving over a second-floor railing inside a campus building during class.
The newspaper says the 71-year-old professor walked out of his class Wednesday, returned briefly, yelled and then ran to a second-floor railing outside the classroom. Police say campus security was summoned and Alexandrov dived over the railing and hit the floor, some 20 to 30 feet below.
Lt. Robert Zaffino, a Philadelphia detective, says Alexandrov had had a history of depression and had been having suicidal thoughts.
The private four-year college did not cancel classes but made counselors available to students.
This shit is fucking crazy. What a shitty way to get a class off. I mean how the fuck do you react to your professor leaping over a railing and falling to road-pizza? I would just start drinking. What else can you do?
