that balcony was not very high so all he probably did was make himself disabled... because they just cut his disabled kid`s benefits.... something tells me this was not very well thought out.

He has a disabled kid to care for, so he decided to protest by either A. killing himself, leaving his child fatherless or B. injuring himself to the point that he can no longer look after the kid. Father of the year.

Personally I think suicide is the worst thing to do... especially with a disabled child. The only person he is relieving is himself, what will the child do without a father?

Life lesson learned today: if you want free sh*t from your government, protest by seriously maiming yourself in front of them.

Suicide is not cool, It`s a result of loosing all hope. There is always hope, Even if you can`t see it at the time. You might feel like you`re in the deepest darkest pit of your life and that you will never get out, But that is a delusion. If anyone feels like they`ve lost all hope, I ask that you seek help for yourself. No one is beyond saving, There is always hope.

[quote]A sad fact is that many people who try to commit suicide do not succeed and end up with worse problems than what they started with. You don`t see them because they are in mental institutions with brain injuries caused by bullet wounds, chemical damage, damage from high falls, etc. Contrary to what you see on TV, it is not easy to kill yourself.

If he has a disabled kid, he`s a major prick for this stunt when the kid needs him.

That jump is not high enough to kill you, which I`m sure wasn`t his intention anyway.

Probably a lot of broken bones though.

Very dramatic. Perhaps excessively so. Whatever gets the point across.

It`s taken you 269 posts and over a year of membership to realize that!?!

that was a hot paramedic... that`s prob why he did it. His total relaxation in his fall was great til the very end. He wouldn`t have gotten as hurt if he hadn`t flinched.

He didn`t die. Reports say he had some fractures to the bones in his face and some other "non-life threatening" injuries.

Look, I know the title is clear, but I still feel there should have been some "warning" about its graphic nature.
