Someone choosing to kill themselves is not news. It is a personal tragedy, but not news. IMHO.

The hallway camera should be able to confirm whether or not he left the room after they went there as the wife says. Surprised at the utter silence on this subject. CC poster Merion Mom is on this sailing - I would imagine she will have some information when she returns. It is always so very sad to hear of these things - I can never understand how ANYONE can fall. Jump yet, fall no.

Sadly I did wonder how anyone could sleep through someone falling from their cabin. That's why it would be important for the hallway camera to confirm if he did indeed leave the room. It is devastating any day but NYE seems particularly poignant.
