    I would just like to comment on the very sad news article posted by Peterparra.

    I actually work in the building that faces the Torre Godoy, where the “accident” happened. I just wanted to say exactly what happened, from me as an eye witness.

    The gentleman in question did not fall nor was it any type of accident. Firstly, the windows on the building are high and open inwards, so one would have to physically climb out of the window with the help of a chair or something; upon exiting the window there is a 1 metre concrete ledge over which to manoevre oneself.

    I saw the gentleman climb out of the window, navigate the ledge, bless himself with the sign of the cross and jump.

    It is a huge shock to all of those people that witnessed it and to those who live in the area of Espinardo.

    It is a tragedy when sombody sees no way out and turns to the desperate measure as in this case.

    My thoughts and sympathy go out to his family at this devastating time.

    As you say Antonia it is a tragedy when someone feels that desperate that they have to end their life in those circumstances.

    Our thoughts and prayers must go to those loved ones who are left picking up the pieces

    The answer to your question is No. It was just an unfortunate use of words. I would never trivialise something as tragic as that.

    I am very sorry to hear this news, but there are a such an incredible amount of people affected by what is happening in the Spanish property market. This is just the top-end story – there are hundreds out there livivng and breathing their losses – it is an appalling situation, The Spanish should be disgusted with themselves and the EU should be looking to criminal proceedings upon mayors of these provincial regions.

    quite agree, but i think the average Spaniard has been fed the line that those who have come unstuck were mostly greedy speculators who took a gamble and lost, so they got what they asked for. This old line has been spun for years in order to try and take the blame from the really guilty parties, and somehow justify their hopeless lack of regulation. Now the ‘cat’s out of the bag’ and the Spanish are starting to feel the fallout, they are being slowly forced to take action, but as usual it’s soooooooooo slow.

    “It is a huge shock to all of those people that witnessed it and to those who live in the area of Espinardo.”

    It must be. Spain must get used to it. Why people were not shocked when elderly people houses have been demolished. Owners have suffered heart attacks. They were not business people who were taking risk or speculating. They were ordinary people who just bought a property in good faith.

    “It is a tragedy when somebody sees no way out and turns to the desperate measure as in this case.”

    I do not know the whole story. But doing things the right/correct & controlled manner would have avoided the situation. So I dont fully buy into it.

    “My thoughts and sympathy go out to his family at this devastating time.”

    I agree, the family & friends probably were not even aware as to the going on’s
