Alcohol is a depressant
Missed this botched drunken suicide attempt this morning.
If this guy makes it out ok, perhaps it’s a lesson from above, and he can be inspired to make his second chance in life a better one.
Man survives fall from six story window
A 36-year-old man survived a fall from a sixth-floor window on the 400 block of Ninth Street in Hoboken yesterday, cops said today.
Cops were called to the apartment just after 5 a.m. yesterday on a call of a possible domestic disturbance. They found the apartment door open and, after no one answered their calls or knocks, they went inside to investigate.
A 40-year-old woman then came out of the bedroom and told cops she had been arguing with her boyfriend, who she said was drunk. She said he was still inside the bedroom.
Cops went to check on him but he wasn’t there, reports said. The woman then returned to the bedroom and said the window hadn’t been open when she left.
Police then looked out the window and saw the man — Francisco Gutierrez, a resident of San Antonio, Texas — had jumped.
Gutierrez was treated at the Jersey City Medical Center for a collapsed lung and broken ribs, and reportedly had no feeling in his feet, police reports said.
He is now in serious condition at University Hospital in Newark.
Police are investigating.
And I’m not purposely making fun of depression or suicide, as it’s a serious human problem. I hope he’s ok.
However, when I was scanning in the “We’re number 17” foam hand from my classic David Letterman book from the 80’s, I also saw this “suicide organizer”, which is honestly related to this story. To a degree.
