As it became known “MK”, Tom, a native of the city of Livny, Oryol oblast, came to the store in the area 16.30. He climbed the stairs to the third floor, leaned over the railing and in front of witnesses flew down. Artyom fell to the marble floor and in 3 minutes he lost consciousness. To his aid ran the medical service of the Gum. First, the injured refused to be treated, but then moaned and surrendered into the hands of doctors. The young man’s pupils were dilated, so it has been suggested that Artem took some psychotropic substances.
By the way, the third floor of the Gum due to the high ceilings roughly corresponds to the level of the fifth floor of a residential building.
The patient was admitted to the hospital. Injury is quite heavy — a fracture of the spine, pelvic bones, traumatic brain injury. Recovery will take months.
According to pals, Artem was a difficult period in life. In summer, the young man quit his job (he was selling bags to “the European”), and soon broke up with the girl. He was seriously worried and even refused invitations to birthdays of old friends, explaining that he is tired of life.
