Philadelphia professor kills self during class


www.grandforksherald.com

A Chestnut Hill College professor did the unthinkable Wednesday afternoon during math class.

The horrific act reportedly took place in front of his students and wife Olga Alexandrov, 56, also an adjunct professor at Chestnut Hill, according to sources.

While my first feeling was disgust and sadness for his poor decision and the effect it might have on his students, I then became kinda skeptical of the witness accounts.

It just seems odd to me that a grown man who had dedicated his long life to education would behave like this. And the witness accounts said the man seemed "agitated and confused". While mention of "previous depression" is made, Its seems to me more likely this is either a medical condition such as stroke or mind Control of some sort.

It was not even a guaranteed way to commit suicide. Even with the "head first dive: IN FACT, mortality rates are good from a 20ft fall. So its seems odd that this was immediately put out there as His legacy...

Does this seem odd to anyone else??

Sounds like a neurological disorder.

hallucination of some sort, maybe psychosis. Sounds like something just snapped.

Also he was in his 70's

That is odd. The reason being, as I myself, have fallen down a 30ft cliff and landed somewhat head first and survived with just a severe concussion, half my ear cut off, and scrapes and bruises down my chest. No damage to my spinal cord, which surprised doctors. I walked out of the hospital the very next day, to later find out that they charged me $250 to be escorted out by wheelchair. They also charged me $300 for 2 asprin pills, but they knocked $20 off since I took them myself. All in all, the bill came to $5600. So it's like I payed for a night in a very expensive hotel. Sure I had a CAT scan, spinal tap, and that fluid bag hooked up to me, but I still to this day cannot believe how much the bill came too.

Sorry to go a bit off-topic with the hospital bill. It's hard for me to talk about it without mentioning that lol.

Edit: Like an idiot, I didn't read the actual article before replying. Didn't know he was 71 years old.

Seems like we're missing some of the story, like why he became agitated.

Was there a student messing with him? Or maybe he had an issue with something in a phone call or online?

If this was just a random act of suicide then my guess is he had some kinda unknown brain defect. The brain starts deteriorating after age 50 I believe. Err or it just loses some of its functioning.

Now if it were multiple people taking the plunge randomly that would be kinda fishy.

Mortality rates for a 71 year old in a twenty foot drop are NOT good. Even the healthiest is pretty much going to be loosing the fight with the floor at that age.

I agree though, sounds like he might have had some sort of psychological or neurophysical disorder. Perhaps he had swelling in the brain... people have done very strange things to escape that particular agony.

His death sounds fishy to me. I'm sure we'll soon find out that he was either an active critic against global warming or something to do with discovering free energy.

I try not to see conspiracy in everything these days, but less than 48 hours after the accident the headlines all read "SUICIDE"???? It just doesn't seem right.

NOT EVEN FOR OUR MEDIA WHORES (FUAX NEWS) WHO DO ANYTHING TO SELL A STORY AND KEEP US MISDIRECTED AT ALL TIMES.


And while yea, at age 70, it is very different considering a fall, BUT he just did this on the 3RD!!!!!.

Off topic, I soooooooo understand about the hospital bill! LOL

To commit suicide means you are not in the right frame of mind. I've known 2 people myself that have killed themselves. The first I was too young to recall if her behaviour was out of the ordinary, the second I saw just a week before she died. And she seemed happy, I would definately not have predicted that she'd kill herself.

So what I'm trying to say is, this doesn't seem that odd to me.

I agree you are "not right in the mind" if contemplating suicide, BUT this case is odd.

I also have known one family member and one friend who have made this stupid, selfish, and irreversible decision. I just think (for multiple reasons listed by witness's) this guy did NOT make an "aware decision" to kill himself at that moment. and it bothers me even more that this was immediately thrown out as a suicide.

By an aware decision, i mean the thought "I am going to do it now." The last thing a person thinks as they pull the trigger so to speak.

What an incredibly ignorant comment...

A friend of mine had severe depression but told nobody about it other than his doctor, because he never told anyone it got worse and he started to fail classes at university and eventually failed the whole course... A couple of days after, he phoned his brother to talk but he was busy and he hung himself the next day on a football field for the whole world to see.

Trying to understand the human brain in instances like this and the news story above is difficult as their perspective on reality is crooked.

It is a sad story and may he rest in peace!

wow that’s terrible... I can never understand the fear that some Americans have regarding free health care... Sure its a little more tax, but we ALL get sick one day. I guess it’s ok for the rich who can afford £5000 when they sneeze... The British NHS may not be perfect (not by a long shot) but everyone gets treated and nobody has to sell their home!

Anyway, back on track, I really don’t see anything suspicious here. Some people do just crack. Sadly, it seems to me, that this is what happened here.

I just hope that the people who witnessed this can eventually more on from such a shocking sight.

Peace

Life's tuff these days,were all trying to make ends meet.

Maybe,his mind was filled with constant debt pressure,and just had a mad moment,and snapped...

Making ends meet,or big debt problems at 70+ years old,is hard to carry on living with.

If we knew what the words were he screamed before he killed himself,we may have a better understanding of why he did this..

I doubt its because he knew some secret free energy,or the likes.....like i said its a tuff living these days...it wears the best of us down !

i think the professor was vulnerable and concerned about what he thought other people's attitudes were toward him.

in the new testament one of the apostles warned preachers not to look at the people they were preaching to.
i think the professor percieved some people in the audience showing contempt towards him. some may have but who knows maybe they just looked that way.

something was messing with him.

we all need someone greater to lean on no matter how much or how little we know.

Maybe you would have been better off dying?.. $5000 bucks seems pretty cheap to me.

next time be more careful.
