More Christmas Tragedy

Posted by on December 29 at 5:23 AM

A 52 year-old man on Camano Island blew his brains out after a tree fell on his trailer early on Christmas day, trapping his legs. His legs weren’t broken, but he couldn’t free himself. Authorities believe that he figured that no one would come along and find him, and he would eventually die anyway, so he blew his brains out.

But a friend dropped by to say hi that afternoon and found his body. The Seattle Times has the story.

There was a story like that from Indiana a few years back. A guy got his arm stuck in a piece of farm machinery way out in the field with not a soul around. He was in a ton of pain so he took his free arm and grabbed a wrench and tried to knock himself out. He did. Now he's in a chair and his arm turned out to be fine.
Parable for something but I don't know what.
