Latest Fall at Tate Modern Sparks Renewed Calls for Increased Safety Measures

In response to the incident, the popular tourist destination announced an immediate closure for the remainder of the day. The Tate Modern conveyed this information through a social media post, stating, “Tate Modern will be closed for the rest of the day while we respond to an incident on site. If you have an exhibition ticket for today, we will be contacting you directly to reschedule your booking. Thank you.”

Later, the Tate Modern issued a formal statement expressing deep sorrow over the loss of a member of the public. The police, while not treating the event as suspicious, collaborated with the gallery’s decision to close for the day as a gesture of respect. The statement read, “All our thoughts are with the person’s family and friends at this time.”

This tragic incident marks the second fatality at the Tate Modern in recent years. In August 2019, a young boy fell victim to a horrifying incident when he was thrown from a viewing platform by a stranger. Jonty Bravery, a 17-year-old, targeted the French youngster during his visit to the Tate. Bravery’s motive was later revealed to be a desire to find someone to harm, leading to his conviction for attempted murder and a life sentence with a minimum of 15 years in prison. The unfortunate recurrence of such events raises concerns about safety measures at the renowned art gallery.
