A young migrant took his life in the center of the city of Larissa, in central Greece. According to local media, the man was found to have hanged himself from a tree very close to one of the main streets of the city. According to locals, the young man was allegedly wandering around in the area a couple of hours before the incident begging for food and saying he had not eaten anything for 5 days. But the claims are based on hear-saying.
“It was shortly after midnight when passersby found the young man hanging from a tree in the pedestrians zone just a couple of meters away from one of the main streets of Larissa. He had apparently stepped on the bench under the tree, tied the noose and put an end to his life.
“A few hours earlier, the man was wandering in the neighborhood begging for food and saying that he hadn’t eaten anything for 5 days,” local resident said.
