    Bizarre Double Suicide Attempt

    Men survive gruesome suicide attempt

    Published on: 03/09/07
    Two Atlanta men survived an attempt to kill themselves Friday by cutting off their arms with a circular saw, according to Atlanta Police Major Lane Hagin.

    The men managed to sever three of their arms about six inches above the wrist, he said.


    The two men ages 40 and 41 left a suicide note with the manager of their Atlanta apartment building saying they were committing suicide because their business had failed and they were recently diagnosed with HIV, Hagin said.

    After reading the note, the manager called police who found the two men in their apartment with "a lot of blood," the major said.

    Their names were not released. Police spokesman Steve Coleman said both were in stable condition at Grady Memorial Hospital late Friday and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.

    No charges will be filed in the incident, police said

    This just confuses me. Why would anyone who wanted to die do this?
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    We should not be joking about this, but it really is such a bizarre way to try and kill yourself.
    I hope they get the help they need. Seriously.

    The fact that they had HIV and chose such a bloody demise shows me that they were pretty angry people.

    That's exactly what I wondered. They really didn't think this through, did they?
