Passenger’s suicide at Terminal 3 (Dubai International Airport)

This is the e-mail which I’ve received today.

I have heard about the passenger who killed himself at Terminal 3 couple of weeks ago but I never knew circumstances of his suicide. According to this e-mail, passenger killed himself because he didn’t have the money to pay the penalty for missing his flight. He stayed at the airport for 5 days and, finally, he jumped from departures level to arrivals level.

If this news was investigated and published then we could discuss objective reasons why he killed himself, how come he stayed at the airport for 5 whole days before suicide or how could the suicide be prevented. This way we can only read this e-mail and wonder why should anyone send it to me if it isn’t the truth?

    Dubai authorities have a say not Emirates on what gets published and what doesn’t. They also tend not to publish without contacting the family, and gaining their consent. On a more cynical note newspapers may not see this as newsworthy; regardless the lack of publication, very little to do with Emirates let alone EKAS.

    As you can see from the link above, these things do get reported.

    Dubai authorities own Emirates Airline (cynicism?).

    No accusations here, just posting the received e-mail.

    This makes us wonder if we are living on the planet where 200aed have higher value than human life. Sometimes publishing the story prevents rumours. This way we can only wonder how can it happen that someone wanders around the airport for 5 days (maybe hungry?), not being able to go home. And that question does have everything to do with Emirates and EKAS.

    Yes, this information is true. Nothing surprising that they hide it, like many other awful things… That’s the first suicide that I’ve witnessed, but I’m working here only one year. Surely there were more, but no one cares.
    My friend from the boarding gates once found a passenger with a similar situation. He’s been in the airport for 3 days, hasn’t eaten at all, sleeping on the chairs, he missed his flight and had no money. They were from the same country with my friend that’s why they started talking and she was shocked when found out… She bought him food and a return ticket with her own money (800 euro salary), no one in emirates office wanted to help it out. The passenger was so happy… And who knows, maybe she saved another life…
