The Miri Fire Station received a call regarding a suicide attempt spiderman attempt near Permyjaya at a training institute. The firemen arrived to see a teenager, a hospitality student, standing at the edge of his hostel window since 7am.

The firemen failed to coax the spiderman to get back into the building. Then the spiderman, for whatever reason, did a Spider Jump and hung on to the waterspout piping on the building. Apparently, he got stuck there, and then the firemen used the ladder to bring him down.

Miri deputy police chief Supt Stanley Jonathan Ringgit when met during a press conference yesterday said, “The case is being investigated as suicide attempt."

But, it's NOT a suicide attempt is it? Because, with suicide attempts, people jump DOWN, not UP and then hang off pipes.

According to Borneo Post, the police had detained the student to help facilitate their investigation. Wow, what a nice thing to do for a person who had just attempted suicide. You DETAIN him, I'm sure that'll make him feel better and not reattempt suicide.

And according to The Star Online news :
“Throughout the communicating process, we took other counter measures like trying to set up a makeshift safety net below just in case.”

And this is the "safety net" they were talking about :
Yes, a mattress. On top of the angled concrete like that, not going to help much is it?


Incie Wincie Spiderman,
climbed up the building ledge,
then came the firemen,
get down safely-they pledged,

Incie Wincie Spiderman,
then jumped up the waterspout,
and then all the firemen
they all rescued him-  no doubt.
