21 yr old attempts suicide on govt building

Rescuers saved a youth from committing suicide  at the Ministry culture Youth and Sports building.

A passerby said that he was on his way home when he encountered slow moving traffic, at the Jalan Kebangsaan. At first he thought it was an accident however he was shocked to see a woman in pink on top of the ministry building.

He and numerous other motorists stopped by the side of the road to see what the commotion was about. There were a blur of phone calls and short text messages by the motorists to family members or friends who worked at the Ministry.

It was discovered that the distraught youth is 21 years old from Kg Bengkurong and was said to be having a counselling session in the building, when she excused herself, what was presumed to be an excuse to the washroom. However when she did not return, it was presumed she left the building, until an alarm was set off indicating that the youth was on the roof.

There were no clear reasons why she was on the roof, what was certain was that she appeared to be under a lot of stress. The fire and rescue officials were called immediately, while councellors immediately tried to talk the youth down from the roof.

Rescuers, family members and counsellors coaxed the youth for two in a half hours to listen to reason and abandon her suicide attempt. At 515pm, they succeeded to the cheer of the amassing crowd below.

“Its good that it ended the way it did. The youth must’ve been very tired, she was swaying a lot on the roof. She was there since 3pm,” said a passerby who had witnessed the whole event.

    Everytime I see that I get really sad. Probably I’m being naive, but can’t someone prevent them from even trying? Who is responsible for them ending up up there? (stefaniesoehnchen.wordpress.com)
