Man Commits Suicide at London Airport to Avoid Deportation (Video)
A video showing a young man falling from a height of several metres in an airport has been circulating online, with several captions, some claiming that he was a Saudi prince, others claiming he was a Nigerian who committed suicide at London’s Heathrow airport.
In the video, several witnesses can be seen looking visibly shocked. The footage was shared on social media and on Algerian websites with the following caption:
Saudi Prince Bandar bin Khalid bin Abdul Aziz Saoud committed suicide at London airport on Monday as British officials attempted to deport him from the UK.
According to the Observer, When you search for this video, you’ll quickly learn that this scene did not take place in London, but rather in the US at Atlanta airport on February 28.
The man, as it turned out, was not at all a Saudi prince: he was a young man who reportedly had been intoxicated and got into a disagreement with another passenger prior to his fall, according to local media reports. He survived after he was taken to hospital and treated for injuries.
