Yang Jun, aged 30, had plans to end it all earlier this month, but alas, even the best laid plans of …well, you know the rest.
Instead of being saved by the bell at the very last moment like those fabled heroes and heroines of old, Jun was saved by falling asleep.
He had ingested more than 50 sleeping pills before climbing up the 150-foot Haiyin Bridge in Guangzhou, eastern China. His plan was to jump off the top and end his torment and depression over a broken marriage.
“I couldn’t make up my mind which was better – an overdose or jumping. So I decided to use both. However I was feeling very sleepy by the time I got to the top and the next thing I knew I woke up in the hospital, said Jun.
Negotiators kept him engaged in conversation, but the pills took effect and Jun was unable to keep his eyes open. He quickly fell asleep and began to snore loudly, fate intervening and interfering with his plans for the day.
All’s well that ends well, as Jun is now reunited with his wife, but one can’t help but wonder about the outcome if those pills had taken a little bit longer to do their thing.
Perhaps this brings a different connotation to the words, “wonder drug,” if you know what I mean?
What do YOU think about this?
