Dane rescued after suicide attempt


A Danish man was injured after slashing his wrists with an aluminum can and running into a reservoir in an apparent suicide attempt.

The 33-year-old Dane, identified only as Migel, was saved following an hour-long negotiation with police and rescuers at Lake Mabprachan June 13. He was treated at Banglamung Hospital.

Fisherman Suphan Namlao said he saw the Dane use a broken can as a knife to slash his wrists and then try to drown himself.
