Suicide Attempts

A 39-year-old man in Chillicothe, Ohio, was hospitalized in December 2004 after an unsuccessful suicide attempt that accidentally blew his own house to pieces and did heavy damage to neighboring homes.

The man had turned on the natural gas to kill himself, but then realized that other houses might be in danger, and just as he dashed to the basement to turn off the electricity, the house exploded (probably from an electrical spark) and was leveled.

A month before, the man had tried to kill himself with automobile exhaust and a garden hose, but his car ran out of gas before he could die, and he then hooked up a propane tank for the same purpose, but once again, he outlived his fuel supply.
