Pic shows: Victor Jose Arroyo Gonzalez falling down. This is the tragic moment a deaf-mute young man fell more than 160 feet to his death from an electricity pylon when he touched live wires after giving up on his suicide bid. Victor Jose Arroyo Gonzalez, 20, had scaled the huge pylon in the city of Barranquilla in northern Colombia???s Atlantico department and threatened to throw himself off. But police officers and onlookers reportedly talked him out of killing himself and he had just started climbing back down when tragedy struck, according to reports. There was a huge flash and a cloud of smoke as the young man touched a live wire and he fell from near the top of the pylon. His limp body flipped around another cable lower down before somersaulting all of the way to the ground below as a crowd of onlookers screamed in horror. The disturbing scenes were captured on the smartphones of eyewitnesses in the Los Olivos area of the city. Mr Gonzalez had earlier been heard shouting: "I am going to throw myself off, I do not want to continue living anymore, I cannot cope anymore." He was declared dead at the scene. The deaf mute man was reportedly suffering from depression and had previously climbed tall structures to threaten suicide. Barranquilla, a port on the Caribbean Sea, is the only major city in South America that was populated before its formal foundation by Europeans. (ends)
