Cold Onlookers Encourage Man to Kill Himself
Posted on January 17, 2009
Why is it that the cold always seems to bring out the worst in people.
In Changchun, China, Mao Yung, a 28 year-old man, stood in the freezing cold on top of an eight story building, contemplating whether or not to commit suicide by jumping to his death.
Six hours later, commuters, who were stuck on the closed down bridge, finally had enough and began yelling for Mao to hurry up and jump.
“Jump, quick! It’s so cold. We’re all here to watch you.”
Police finally managed to pull the man to safety, but were disgusted by the attitude of the crowd.
