This is the heartbreaking moment a Turkish man live streamed his own suicide after breaking up with his girlfriend.
22-year-old, Erdogan Ceren, claims that his girlfriend had cheated on him before adding that he could not live without her.
He then claims that nobody believed he would die for her before showing viewers a shotgun aimed to his chest, adding ‘so watch this’, reports the Mirror.
At first, the gun jams but seconds later Erdogan shoots himself, sending his body hurtling backwards out of view.
Apparently, the video was filmed in the Osmaniye Province of southern Turkey yesterday.
Before committing suicide, Erdogan shared a poem with his friends and followers which read:
Our love was going to be a saga, our eyes were not going to shed tears, now tell me love, are you leaving, will my hands burn without you.
It makes for a truly harrowing watch. If only there was something somebody, somewhere could’ve done to stop this young man from ending his life.
If you’re ever feeling down, groups such as The CALMzone offer amazing support in the UK.
Their helpline and webchat services are open 5pm to midnight every day:
NATIONWIDE: 0800 58 58 58
LONDON: 0808 802 58
Hopefully, someday soon we can begin to put an end to such suicides.
