Horror at the Hilton

By Amy Stirling.

Just before 9am this morning, an American business woman committed suicide by jumping 80ft from a window of Edinburgh’s Caledonian Hilton Hotel at the foot of Lothian Road.

Morning commuters were left stunned when the thirty year old tipped herself over the ledge just as an ambulance arrived; onlookers have said that she broke a window on the fourth floor in order to get out and sat for a few minutes rocking back and forth before she fell.

Despite comments and reports, the incident is not being treated as suspicious and a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
