Young teens threatened to leap at court building

Two young teens, who have a habit of threatening to jump, threatened to do so again Thursday afternoon from the fourth floor of the court building in downtown San José.

The two girls found their way to a balcony, and one sat on the wall and dangled a leg over the side some 50 meters above the ground. Eventually they were talked down. Both girls are involved with the Patronato Nacional de Infancia, the child welfare services, and had been living in agency shelters. They have been involved in similar incidents.
