Suicides in Japan

9 05 2008

Lately the news has reported several cases of people attempting suicide by concocting poisonese hydrogen sulfide gas   One case was even covered internationally because the neighbors in the girls building had  begun to feel sick.  The latest case I saw on the tv news tonight talked about a man who had gassed himself in his car but left a note warning of the gas.  The most surprising thing to me came at the end of the story.  The news cast gave out a toll free phone help line for people to call if they feel suicidal!  Sounds ordinary right but I have never watched a news program do such a thing before and it is about time they did too!
