GB man tries to hang himself from a tree
A 29-year-old man on Grand Bahama tried to hang himself from a tree in the middle of the night but his efforts to take his own life were thwarted.
The man who lives on Graveyard Corner in Pinedale, Eight Mile Rock apparently attempted to commit suicide around midnight.
He had already tied the rope to the tree and placed it around his neck but someone found him before it was too late.
However, the rope had already started to do its damage as the man’s neck was badly bruised.
When police got on the scene shortly after midnight, the rope in question was still hanging from the tree. However, they were relieved the man is still alive.
EMS Personnel were called to the scene and the young man was taken to the Rand Memorial Hospital for medical attention.
