Tonga Police talk down man threatening to jump from top of hospital tower

A Police Emergency Service team persuades a man who had threatened to jump from a tower at Vaiola hospital on Friday to step back.

Photos seen by Kaniva News showed what appeared to be tearful relatives of the man standing together and were calming each other while some of them were talking to the man.

The man, who was not identified, had finally agreed to climb down with the help of some Police officers. He was taken to the hospital’s psychiatric centre unharmed for evaluation.

An evaluation report is expected to be released to the media, the Ministry of Health told Kaniva News.

Many concerned people took to social media in an attempt to find out what was going on.

One person on Facebook wrote: “What happened?”

Another asked: “Why are the Police Emergency Services officers attending the scene?”

A third person wrote: “Thanks that he is being saved and rescued?”
