We begin this holiday-shortened week’s coverage with a rather gruesome follow-up to our report last week on the epic suicide fail in Böhönye. At around 8:30 p.m. on Saturday night Budapest police were called in to deal with a man who had scaled the Szabadság Híd, one of the most popular places in town for people to kill themselves, or at least to prepare to kill themselves and then change their minds at the last moment. Well, as the picture to the left indicates, the man in question doesn’t seem to have been ambivalent. After dousing himself with some kind of flammable liquid, he set fire to himself and then jumped off the pylon, landing on the walkway below. No arguing with that. [index.hu]
UPDATE: Video after… the jump.
