According to the report from this link....
"Dear passengers, let's think again about the parents and sisters and brothers we love and the preciousness of our life."
people who leap to their deaths in front of subway trains.
check out the statistics
Driven by debt, lost love, terminal disease and other miseries, 95 people killed themselves in Seoul's subway system last year, up from the 58 in
2002. So far this year, 37 people have ended their lives the same way.
Thats a 61 percent increase form 2002 to 2003.
One driver who exchanged gazes with a man who died under his train later suffered a mental breakdown and was transferred to a non-driving post.
Could this be the reason why the south koreans are sending an army of 3000 men to Iraq. I guess there's a difference to dying honorably in combat
and leaping in front of a train.
In an unrelated case last year, a subway driver with a history of mental problems committed suicide by jumping in front of a colleague's train.
This is very disturbing. What are they doing differently...
"The goal of our 'music therapy' is to soothe the minds of potential suicides. Experts say it works on animals."
In this quote the article reducs South Koreans to that of animals. Since when did animals commit suicide????? In other parts of the world, namely
England, back when I was there, Tower Bridge and London Bridge, were popular places for people commiting suicide. At least thats what rumor had it..
Are these researches approaching the problem efficetively, like come on, music therapy?? This is getting out of hand..
