Once there he stripped naked and then leapt to his death as tourists looked on terrified in the Italian holiday resort of Rimini on the Adriatic coast.
One shocked eyewitness said: ”It was horrible. He dodged security and then climbed to the very top of the wheel. It was a summer night and so the area was still packed with people.
”Once at the top he took his clothes off and then a few minutes later he jumped and as he came down he hit several part of the wheel which had been stopped by the operator.
”It was terrible there were loads of kids still around and they all saw what happened. The police and paramedics were at the scene pretty quick but there was nothing that could be done.”
TV footage showed emergency vehicles at the foot of the attraction and a team of forensic cops surrounding the man’s body which was covered by a white sheet.

”A file is being prepared for the local magistrate but there is no suspicion of anyone else being involved.”
