About the First Incident
While it is not clear where the man today fell from, in August 2019 a little boy was thrown from the viewing platform by a stranger.
The French youngster was visiting the Tate on the South Bank with his family when disturbed teen Jonty Bravery, then 17, singled him out, grabbing him and throwing him off the outside space at the famous London landmark.
On the day of the incident, teen Jonty Bravery was lying in wait and hoping to pick on someone to kill, a court was later told.
He was convicted of attempted murder and jailed for life with a minimum of 15 years.
The boy suffered a bleed on the brain, broken legs and arms and a fractured spine, but amazingly survived the fall at the art gallery.
