A WOMAN was dangled from a Glasgow tower block by her hair seconds before she plunged to her death.

Alem, an Eritrean national, was described as a “wonderful person” by friends at her local Eritrean Orthodox Church.

One horrified local told the Daily Record: “I could hear hysterical screaming and I went to the window and I saw the woman being held by the hair.

“She didn’t fall right away, because she was trying desperately to hold on to the window sill and she was scratching at the wall with her feet, trying to get a hold to keep herself from falling.

“It was terrible to watch.”

A man was seen running away from the block shortly after the tragedy on Monday at about 5.15.pm but was held down by witnesses until the police arrived.

The eyewitness who took the harrowing photo helped tackle the man who tried to run away from the scene.

He claimed the man tried to get away but he fell over a wall and was grabbed by a concierge and few women.

The unidentified man was held down until police arrived.

Women who were at the scene spoke the same language as the man who was “chanting”, “praying” and “looked out of it”, the eyewitness said.

It is not clear if the man is related or known to Alem.

Alem, an Eritrean national, was described as a “wonderful person” by friends at her local Eritrean Orthodox Church.

Joseph Ghebreyesus, Eritrean Orthodox church board member, said: “We’re just passing through a very sad time.

“In the last two days we lost one of our wonderful members of the church and the family are here grieving.

    If somebody has told them the true picture of what it looks on the other side of the fence would they have stayed home? would they have stood up and face their tormentors?would they have cocked their gun and blew away the one who made them feel worthless? would they have walked into the regime’s palace and demand change or else? would they..would they…instead of withering away in the sands of the Sahara,being a bait to the sharks of the M.S.,decaying alive in the slave like dungeons of Libya and if they make it alive a sad fate like this one…a lost generation with no identity,God bless their soul.The Lord won’t forgive those who exposed them to the elements nor would He have mercy on those who betrayed the fallen.Cry my beloved homeland!!
