Dubai: Dubai Police disputed reports in Western media on Monday about a woman who committed suicide apparently by throwing herself off the Burj Khalifa last November. Police said a foreign national did commit suicide by jumping from a building but the incident actually took place in the Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

The Daily Mail had reported that Laura Vanessa Nunes, 39, fell to her death from the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa.

Major General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant to the Dubai Police Chief for Criminal Investigation Affairs, said that the 39-year-old woman with a South African passport, jumped out of her 14th-floor Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) apartment.


He said investigations showed that the woman was in a bad emotional and psychological state following a failed relationship with a GCC national she met in 2009, which led her to take the extreme step.
