A man with Chinese and US citizenship allegedly jumped from the fourth floor of Terminal 2 at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport early yesterday morning after throwing his Taiwanese wife over a guard rail from the same floor.
The woman, a 33-year-old surnamed Chang (張), was unconscious and in critical condition at Min-Sheng General Hospital, while her 32-year-old husband, surnamed Wan (萬), sustained fractured ribs, but was able to be questioned by aviation police yesterday afternoon.
The incident occurred on a stairway near the departure area in Terminal 2 at 12:38am as Wan was preparing to fly back to the US, Aviation Police Bureau officer Tien Wei-jen (田偉仁) said.
Airport surveillance footage showed the two apparently in a heated argument.
