To be honest I'm getting pretty fed up of all this now. A couple of weeks ago the M6 was closed at Leyland because someone had jumped in front of a truck. Last week the M61 was closed at Chorley at rush hour because someone was hanging off a bridge.
Another story on here reports the M65 being shut because of someone on the side of the motorway and now this.

Everyone has problems at some point but there is help available and to subject this to a train or truck driver is just wrong!
Not to mention all the disruption it causes to people and business.

How pitiful that you have no consideration for the utter desperate feelings that would drive a person to take their own life. Hopefully you won't ever find life so toug, but then being such a selfish, heartless, individual I'm pretty sure you will be just fine.

Firstly you ignorant miscreant, where does it say this bloke is dead?

Secondly, Mr Hung has more than a valid point. Yes it's tragic when a person reaches this point in their lives but why don't they have any consideration for the person who's car etc they are about to drop on who might just fancy carrying on living?

If you're going to kill yourself / attempt suicide there are plenty of ways to do it without unwittingly dragging other poor b@starts into it to do it for you who will probably be traumatised for years.

Nothing more than pure selfishness.

Why rip when it clearly says he was taken to hospital.

More likely to be tipsy and fell after being in the pub than attempt suicide

Hope you or your family never have any mental health problems, then you might understand instead of being ignorant.

Perhaps you can clarify what this help is that you refer to & the implication that its oh so easy to access?
You must have missed the reduction of 1700+ mental health beds nationally, so to have you missed the reduction in general mental health services, you must also have missed the waiting time for counseling via your G.P...26wks in this area. That's a lifetime to someone desperately struggling with life.

The real facts are, there us very little help that's easily available, even when someone us known to the services that there are. If you are lucky enough to be sectioned (providing a beds available), you'll end up many miles from home. The sheer rise in desperate suicides & attempted ones should tell everyone all they need to know....there's little or no help available to vulnerable people teetering on the brink, only when you have tried & failed to kill yourself 2 or 3 times do the services take you seriously. That is woefully unacceptable.

There's been a rush to judgement and condemnation on here. We've had RIPs and people commenting on the RIPs all based on nothing as he's not dead. Then we've had speculation and counter-speculation ON speculation based on the 'fact' he's mentally ill and this is a cry for help. Why don't you wait to see the full facts before commenting? He may have been blown on the line on by a strong gust of wind or lost his way in an orienteering event for all we know.

do you really think someone who feels their only option to free themselves from unbearable pain and living hell have the capacity for logical thought?
suicide is not selfish.
a lot of people who kill themselves are doing so not just to end their own unbearable pain but also to give escape to anyone who is still close to them, because they feel they're inflicting misery on them and ruining their lives as well.
they're incapable of thinking of the consequences.
you try being locked in your head with a downward, negative spiral of thoughts, self hate , self criticism (and all the rest of the crap that pushes a lot of people to suicide) for 24 hours a day and see how you fare.
maybe people will only fully realise what it feels like when they've been there.
it's not something you can just snap out of.
if it were so easy everyone could do it.
as for help. most waiting lists are well into double figures for any form of help, unless you're at the point where you can get sectioned and the chances of that are pretty remote with the loss of beds.
the help is there but there aren't enough therapists to cope with demand.
maybe if people were less selfish and thought a little more before condemning, people wouldn't feel this was their only option left.

I've no issue with people wanting to 'free themselves from pain' if that's their bag. All I want them to do is carry out their mission without involving or inconveniencing anyone else.
Why should I have to sit in a traffic jam for hours because some Herbert stares over a motorway bridge?

If you want to see what miserable and depressing is get down to Ewood Park on a Saturday!

Manuel Hung - how can you possibly equate mental health issues with a game of football! Your comments really do speak volumes about your character. You need to get some proper focus in your life. Apart from that I really am stuck for words. Unbelievable!

read the whole two piece story before posting comments..
A TEENAGE boy fell from the railway bridge above Ramsgreave and Wilpshire last night.

Officers from British Transport Police and the ambulance service were called to the station just after 7.15pm.

Having landed on the tracks on the Manchester Victoria to Clitheroe line, an oncoming train stopped over him.

The boy had sustained some minor injuries and was taken to Royal Preston Hospital to be fully assessed.

To all commentators on this page except steveseagullass. It's human nature to get a bit over excited when certain articles are reported which may well result in the contents not being read fully and or not understood as it is reported but what the brain may think what is being meant translated accordingly and to be honest nowt wrong. We are humans after all.
And to insulting 'stevenass' who being what he is a cret resorting to insulting and abusive and insulting vocabulary language to other commentators, 'miscreant', 'have you been sniffing glue', and the normal frequent drunkard accusation, whom I would love to run down in my car but because of my age my license having been terminated by the DVLA, if he ever wished to end it all, I would certainly do the honours, but priory I would rinse his stinking gob with my urine.

Another story on here reports the M65 being shut because of someone on the side of the motorway and now this.

Everyone has problems at some point but there is help available and to subject this to a train or truck driver is just wrong!
Not to mention all the disruption it causes to people and business.
How pitiful that you have no consideration for the utter desperate feelings that would drive a person to take their own life. Hopefully you won't ever find life so toug, but then being such a selfish, heartless, individual I'm pretty sure you will be just fine.
Firstly you ignorant miscreant, where does it say this bloke is dead?

Secondly, Mr Hung has more than a valid point. Yes it's tragic when a person reaches this point in their lives but why don't they have any consideration for the person who's car etc they are about to drop on who might just fancy carrying on living?

If you're going to kill yourself / attempt suicide there are plenty of ways to do it without unwittingly dragging other poor b@starts into it to do it for you who will probably be traumatised for years.

Nothing more than pure selfishness.
Steven Seagull, if it's your birthday coming up any time soon, ask someone to buy you a dictionary! Miscreant, hmm yes ok. What a simpleton.
