Detainee Jumps Off 2nd Floor in Escape Attempt

A detainee threw himself off the second floor of the Justice Palace on Tuesday in a botched escape attempt.

The National News Agency identified the man by his initials, J.S., saying he staged the attempt as he was being escorted by security forces following an interrogation session.

“He landed on a car parked on the ground floor near the prison cell, suffering bruises and wounds,” NNA added.

“He was immediately rushed to al-Hayat Hospital in a critical condition,” the agency said.

It noted that the detainee is being held on drug dealing charges.
