My eyes beheld a very gory and pathetic sight today.
As I was driving home from work, I noticed a partly burnt man lying almost lifelessly on the ground on a car tire.
When I inquired, I was told by some eye-witnesses that the young man allegedly poured fuel on himself and set himself ablaze.
Then, I saw a five-litre gallon lying empty by the side and they said that was what he used to get the fuel.
I was further told that they were waiting for the police to come.
I wonder what would make such a young man decide to end his life and also doing it in such a cruel way.
It was one of the most frightening sights I have ever encountered and the image keeps flashing through my mind.
What a day!
Suicide rate has been on the increase these days.
