Witnessed one of these first hand while having a child’s birthday party in the community room of Avalon North . The guy went up to look at a apartment for rent with agent and excused himself to the terrace to make a phone call… he splattered in the deck outside the community room while the birthday party was going on. These tall terraced buildings pose an attractive means to the end for persons in despair. When you cant pay your rent the attraction can get the better of you.
