On Sunday, September the 2nd, a 41 year old man, a Telecom Egypt employee, tried to commit suicide by throwing himself on the rods of the subway, in “Gamal Abd El Nasser” Metro station; resulting in the resection of his right leg.
Gamal Abd El Nasser’s Subway traffic was allegedly disrupted for fifteen minutes straight, as the guy was rescued, pulled up, and moved to “El Helal El Ahmar” Hospital.
The subway spokesman, Ahmed Abd El Hady, commented on the matter; as he spoke about how unfortunate it is that “weak souls” attempt suicide in the same way very often, so they usually go to the nearest Metro Station.
Additionally, he demanded from the ones who feel weak, distressed or anguished, not to use the subway as a suicide mean; as all they do is disrupt the citizens daily business and interests, also the subway is not a death instrument!
Feeling suicidal is a mental illness. If you or someone you know have suicidal tendencies please seek help.
