A man threw himself off the world's tallest building in Dubai Tuesday, plummeting to his death in the first suicide from Burj Khalifa tower, MSNBC reports.
Local reports quoted security officials as saying the worker fell from the 147th floor of the 828-meter-tall tower and landed on a deck on the 108th floor.
Local media believed the man jumped following a dispute with his company.
