`French police are investigating the suicide of two teenage girls who tied themselves together and leapt from the 17th floor of a tower block while their horrified boyfriends watched.
The girls, named only as Marion and Virginie, had apparently carefully prepared their deaths, intending their boyfriends, Ben and Julien, to witness the event.
The girls had gone to a relative’s flat and told the two boys to wait in the living room while they prepared a “surprise”. One of them called from the bedroom: “OK, come in.” Ben opened the door. Marion and Virginie were standing on the window sill, their hands tied together. They smiled and jumped.’
