Suspected suicide attempt in Vieux Fort

A thirty-five year old male was taken to hospital last night following a suspected attempt at suicide, it has been reported.

According to a source familiar with the incident, the man is said to have consumed an assortment of medication.

Although bleeding through the nose, the Augier resident was reported to be in stable condition today.

The circumstances surrounding the incident were unclear.

Earlier this week, Cecilia Daniel Marshall, 43,  of Desglo died in hospital after consuming the weedicide, gramaxzone.

Relatives reported that the woman was beset by a number of problems, including money woes, the recent death of her husband and her own battle with cancer.

There have also been reports that following that Desglo incident an Anse La Raye resident, who discovered that the woman with whom he was in a relationship also had a romantic interest in another male, attempted to set himself alight but was restrained by others.

The man is reported to have been taken to the National Mental Wellness Centre for counselling.

      Sometimes sad-but-true knows what he or she talking about but point the blame on the wrong person. He means KDA for not paying his dues to the devil. Time will tell sad-but-true. Time will tell. Stop blaming Chastanet for evil that KDA brought unto sweet Helen. My sweet ppl keep on praying.

    People always say prayer helps. We are a breed of self centered self loving idiots…We hate our neighbours and plot against those whom we don’t associate with. Prayer alone will help nothing after all God help those who help themselves. If we raise our children with hate, we build a family of hate, a community of hate and world of hate. It’s time we look to a new form of prayer…The one where we see good in everyone and everything and love them and treat them how we would like to be treated. Whilst we continue to hate on each other…Our world is becoming a worse place. So if we will sit ans pray and say the issues of my country or my world is none of my business….Sit and wait for the tide to crash into your world. Then you will care.
