WINDHOEK, 10 DEC (NAMPA) – A man tried to commit suicide by drinking dishwashing liquid at a house in Katutura on Tuesday, but was stopped just in time by members of the City Police.
He resisted assistance from police officers, and ran away to the Model Pick ‘n Pay Centre in Katutura, where he caused quite a scene, before falling sick to the liquid he ingested.
He was rushed to the Katutura State Hospital for medical attention.
According to witnesses, the man ran into a house and drank the liquid after a disagreement with a close friend of his.
This close friend told the police that the two of them had a dispute over a woman, which may have left his friend to try and take his life.
