Greek Businessman Commits Suicide in Public


Not able to cope with the pain of his illness, a Greek businessman decided to put an end to his life by shooting himself in front of his business in Heraklion, Crete.

The 62-year-old man who was at his office asked his son to go to their house and bring him his lunch. After his son left the office, he grabbed his shotgun, went out on the street and shot himself. His death was instant.

The man was suffering from serious health problems and he was talking often about his increasing pain. Early reports say that he was suffering from cancer.

According to cretalive website, the man had left a note which read: “Do not ask why I did it. I’ve been suffering for five years.”

The 62-year-old who shocked dozens of bystanders and drivers that saw him killing himself, was the owner of a funeral home.
