No one likes to be a failure, but for one man, it might be a blessing in disguise.

Shi, a man from Ningbo, China, was rescued attempting to hang himself from a tree in Nanjing on Monday.

This marked the desperate man’s 100th attempt at suicide… which of course all failed.

Shi has wanted to die ever since he divorced his wife in 2003 and afterward, felt his life was meaningless.

Police are now taking a more serious interest in Shi’s case and hopefully he will get the help he needs.
