Police investigate failed suicide attempt in which mother-in-law’s quick action saves young mother’s life


REAL NEWS: A failed suicide attempt is now under investigation by the Police.

According to reports, a young woman attempted to take her own life on the weekend, after leaving a suicide note for her children and another for her mother- in-law.

It was the older woman who found the young mother unconscious and called the ambulance.

REAL News understands that the Pigotts woman noticed her 32-year-old daughter-in-law writing – at about 10 p.m. on Sunday, August 14 – and asked if she was writing a journal.

According to a source, the daughter-in-law responded by saying, “Yes,” and with a smile on her face.

At about 12:45 a.m., the young woman’s nine-year-old daughter reportedly got up to use the bathroom and found the two letters in front of her grandmother’s bedroom door.

The child, according to reports, immediately woke her grandmother, who went to check on her daughter-in-law; however, she was not in her room.

During a check of the living room, the older woman reportedly saw her daughter-in-law lying on her back, with what appeared to be a strap around her neck, and frothing at the mouth.

Reports say the mother-in-law immediately checked to see if she was breathing – which she was – and then used a pair of scissors to cut the strap from around the young mother’s neck before summoning the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the scene.

The young woman was transported to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre, where doctors report that she has no life-threatening injuries and is recovering well.

A source claims the young mother is going through some personal issues that might have prompted her to consider suicide.

Reports are that the incident occurred between 10 p.m. Sunday night and 1 a.m. Monday morning.

This alleged suicide attempt took place about 48 hours after Alston Furlong, a 45-year-old Parham resident, reportedly ended his own life. A relative reportedly found him hanging by an electrical cord in his bedroom on Friday evening, August 12.

The Police continue to probe this matter, as well.

  1. Hope! That is what all these suicide victims are lacking. We have gone so far astray from the Creator that we have lost all hope.
    We put our trust in politrickians, religious misleaders and other humans and they all fail us.

    Mankind must be told the TRUTH about life: the purpose of life. The metaphysical questions should be taught to our youths from an early age.

    The Big Metaphysical Questions:

    What is the meaning of life?
    What is our place in the universe?
    Are we a body with an immortal soul ? If so, then why do we still need immortality?
    Is there life after death?
    Do heaven and hell exist?
    Why is there something, rather than nothing?
    Do we have free will?
    Does God exist?
    Does any of this – even my act of questioning – actually matter?

    These are critical to understand since we will have to face the crises in life. The crucibles that we have to struggle through as we maneuver life’s pathway.

    Unfortunately, the majority of mankind has rejected the source of the answers to these metaphysical questions. We have instead, turned to our own ways and it is pellucid to realize that we reaping the BITTER consequences.

    Even more unfortunate is that in spite of the naked TRUTH placed point blank before our open eyes, the majority will still shut their minds from this ONLY source because we prefer evil rather than good.

    There is HOPE for those who truly seek it. Regardless of what lemons that life throws at us, there is always THE ONLY SOURCE that can turn those lemons into lemonade.

    May the young lady find this source. The ONLY source of HOPE.

    May her life hereafter presents new beginning and peace. Not the peace that this world gives, but real peace; inner peace that surpasses all problems.


    • PEOPLE FIRST I must say that you had my complete attention with the profound metaphysical questions that you raised. However, I believe you stopped short of providing an answer to those metaphysical questions. The most important question is what is the meaning of life? I was looking for your answer to that question.
