TEL AVIV (Feb. 26)
Israel Radio reported that a Hadera man involved in a family quarrel tried to take his own life in various ways — but failed in each. The man reportedly took an overdose of sleeping pills. When he woke up and found himself still alive, he opened the gas taps. When this did not work he jumped from the roof of his four-story building. Police, summoned by neighbors, saw a man get up from the ground and run away — apparently because he feared he would be charged with attempted suicide.
