SAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte, May 10– A man attempted to commit suicide inside the police station here where he slept overnight on Tuesday to cool off from a misunderstanding with his in-laws.
But the following morning, police officers on duty were shocked when they forcibly opened the suspicious locked bathroom and found him bloodied with self-inflicted wounds.
A suicide note was found from him, police said.
The victim was treated for his injuries at the provincial hospital in Laoag City.
On the next day after his release from the hospital, relatives brought him home to their residence in Brgy. 1, San Nicolas.
However, at home, he tried again to commit suicide by touching the high voltage electrical connection of the house’s fuse box, relatives told reporters.
Unconscious, rescuers rushed him back to the hospital for treatment.
Relatives said the victim seemed depressed since his wife went to Lebanon as overseas Filipino worker. (tri-media report)
