The who had been standing on the roof of Sandton City Mall since early Friday and threatened to jump off, but was later taken to safety in the afternoon after resue came. The woman was on the roof of the building for hours on Friday when rescue workers tried to prevent her from jumping.
Before she could jump off, ambulances services, security personnel and the South African Anxiety and Depression Group (SADAG) arrived on site to control the situation.
SADAG activated an emergency team and for now Sandton City is operating normally after the woman was brought down from the building and access to the Alice Lane shopping center would reopen sooner than expected.
Prior to the event, the shopping mall tweeted that "an angry woman threatened to jump off of the building." Although Sandton City said it spotted the woman around 9:45 a.m, eye witness said the woman was spotted on top of the building around 7:30 a.m.
In order to control the situation, Sandton City added that all access to the Alice Lane shopping center was restricted as roads were closed. What are your thoughts concerning this Mzansi?
