A man has fallen to his death at Menlyn Mall, at Pretoria on Sunday, 07 August 2022, under mysterious circumstances.

This is for the second time in the space of a month.

Officials at the popular Pretoria shopping centre say they are still unsure if the man was pushed, or if he took the plunge on his own accord.

According to a statement provided to local media, the deceased is a 29-year-old male.

It’s presumed he tumbled from at least the fourth floor.

Menlyn Mall’s general manager, Nisha Kemraj says the incident occurred at about 09:45 when a man fell from Cavendish Court.

“We are currently not sure if he was pushed or jumped, however, police are on scene busy with investigations.

An official investigation is underway.

Also, Menlyn Park is fully cooperating with authorities as they investigate the circumstances around the incident.” said Kemraj.

Just a few weeks ago, a man aged 31 also plummeted to his death inside Menlyn Mall.

In a gruesome twist, the victim landed next to a children’s play area.

He was rushed to hospital, only to be pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
