The reasons behind a suicide or attempted suicide can be complex, but often they are stemmed from a feeling of overwhelming hopelessness or frustrations.

A man in Johor recently attempted to take his own life because of a family problem that pushed him to jump off a bridge at Jalan Pantai heading towards Permas Jaya in Johor. 

Thankfully, members of the public managed to save the man from drowning in the river. 

In a Facebook post shared by Info Roadblock JPJ/POLIS, Johor Bahru Selatan District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Mohd Padzli Mohd Zain said that the police received an emergency call at around 7pm on Monday (March 22nd).

“The police interrogated his wife and family which reveals that the cause of the suicide attempt was caused by family problems,” he explained.

The man received treatment at the emergency ward of the Sultan Ismail Hospital (HSI) then later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) due to heart problems and excess water in the body. 

He also added that the man is still unconscious and thanked the general public for stepping in to help save the man.

If you find yourself feeling hopeless or if you’re struggling with your mental health, please reach out to someone you trust!
