A man committed suicide Tuesday by jumping off the 147th floor of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
The man landed on a deck on the 108th floor of the 160-story structure, according to news reports from Dubai.
Dubai police confirmed the suicide, according to a report posted by The Gulf Today.
The man was described as an Asian in his mid-30s.
"The deceased works at one of the companies located at Burj Khalifa itself. We also came to know that the man decided to commit suicide as his company refused to grantΒ leave," a police official told The Gulf Today.
The Burj Khalifa is 2,716.5 feet tall and is the tallest free-standing structure in the world. It officially opened in 2010.
