A Babonneau resident is currently in hospital, after a suspected suicide attempt this morning, it has been reported.
According to information reaching the Times, the man is believed to have consumed a poisonous substance.
It is reported that on discovery of the situation, he was rushed to hospital.
The alleged incident occurred at La Guerre, according to reports.
It comes ahead of Saturday’s planned day of fasting and prayer in Babonneau, organized by MP Alvina Reynolds and church leaders from the community.
The objective of the initiative is to petition divine intervention to address a spate of suicides in Babonneau, as well as other social problems.
Reynolds, at a news conference this week to announce the initiative, acknowledged that some people would question the prayer initiative to address a social problem.
But she echoed the words of the religious leaders at the news conference that at times persons may rationalize and use their intellect.
However Reynolds asserted that there is always the spiritual aspect.
“That is critical because we are whollistic beings, we are spirit, physical and we have a mind, so we need to speak to the spirit and we need the spirit of God to speak to the spirit of man, woman and child in this constituency,” the MP declared.
