I think that everyone is overlooking the fact that this woman who was trying to kill herself, would have instead killed the cab driver had he not just got out out of the car to see what everyone was looking up at. Selfishness, he could have been dead and was just trying to go about his day.

How did that not kill the cab driver, and if he wasnt in the car, how is the car door open. This looks fishy....

There are a lot of nasty and heartless people on here making comments. I'd guess your shoe size matches your IQ size too. Grab a heart and show some compassion for a psychologically and physically wounded person.

It was really crazy!!! I'm from Buenos Aires and my work place is only a few streets away from this hotel (She jumped from the Hotel Panamericano). It was reeeeeeeeeeally crazy... The owner of the taxi was sitting inside his car when he saw a police man looking up. As he was curious, he stepped out to see what was going on. Five seconds later, that woman hit the car. That picture was taken by a girl who was walking by, seconds after it happend. Of course everybody was on shock!!!! The woman is now in the hospital and the car was left there for quite some time... It happend in the most important part of the city so that street was full of people, even tourists and of coooooooooourse, journalists...

Now she will have to pay for the wrecked cab as well as high medical bills. If her life sucked before, it's even worse now...

There will be no medical bills because there's free health care for all in argentina even the drugs are free at public hospitals, i thought you should know that in case you ever visit the place

I´m from Buenos Aires and I can tell you, this was definitely the story of the day... Don´t worry about the medical bill, health care is free... Unfortunately she is in critical condition, but that is no surprise after such a fall. Hope she makes it!
