Moscow: A 24-year-old man leaped out of a third-floor window at a mall in Russia after watching the blockbuster ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, a media report said.

The man, whose name was withheld, jumped off the window of a mall in Krasnodar city Thursday, the website reported.

He survived, but is in intensive care with head injuries, the news website quoted investigators as saying.

The man consumed a handful of Corvalol sedative pills before attempting suicide, the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily said.

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, premiered in Russia Thursday.

Investigators remained puzzled at the man`s motive for suicide. Text messages found on his cell phone identified him as a follower of Zen Buddhism.
