Posted by in Society

Debts? No job? A man saw no way out of the many problems. He took a hunting rifle and shot himself in the face. However he survived the suicide attempt even though the shot hit the jawbones. HE was transferred to a nearby hospital.

According to local media reports, the man left a note explaining the reasons to leave this world: he had debts and he had recently been fired from the job he had.

The incident happened in Vamos town, near Chania in north-western Crete.

It could had happened anywhere in Greece, the country of theoretical “success” and “primary surplus” but practically the country of “debts”,  “recession” and “depression.”

More than 3,000 people are estimated to have committed suicide during the last three years, since the debt-ridden country sought the ‘rescue’ of IMF & EUropean partners.
