Being obese is never seen as being advantageous. Aside from putting one at risk for many illnesses, another disadvantage of being big-bodied is, well…experiencing a failed suicide attempt.
A woman from Jiehe, a rural town in Shandong, China, attempted to kill herself because she feared her husband would reprimand her for causing the potatoes of their 2,700 square meter field to spoil.
She apparently tried jumping into a well, but her large size stopped her from falling down farther than three meters.
With her endless cries for help, she was rescued by the police in no time. With only scratches on her body, she told the reporters later on that she felt embarrassed about what had happened.
