22 Year Old Turkish Man Goes Live on FB, Shoots Himself Post-BreakupOctober 12, 2016 15:25
In a shocking footage, a man who goes live on Facebook after his girlfriend broke up with him committed suicide.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, a Turkish man named Erdogan Ceren from Duzici, a town and district in Osmaniye Province of Turkey was heartbroken and shot himself live on Facebook.
In the video it is seen, the 22-year-old first tells Facebook viewers that he intends to end his life because his girlfriend ditched him. Police suspect that Ceren might already have warned people around him that he intended to commit suicide, because he says to the camera, “No one believed when I said I will kill myself – so watch this.”
The shirtless man holds his shotgun to his chest while addressing the camera and fires, but it does not go off. After one failed attempt, he tries for the second time after readjusting the camera…and the screen goes blank.
The video has been watched lakhs of times and shared widely as well.
As soon as the youths family heard the gunshot, they hurried to check. Erdogen was found in a pool of blood and was taken to hospital immediately but doctors declared him brought died.
According to the reports, "Ceren had previously documented his distraught emotions online, posting a Facebook status saying 'feeling broken' along with the words, “Our love saga would be written, "Behold, the eyes would not cry, half of you is going to tell you now, my hands do without that side''.”
Last month he had also posted on Facebook: “And now he passed away in peace.......forgive me girl”, in perhaps an eerie reference to planning his own death.
Several fan and community pages have appeared on Facebook mourning the death of Ceren.
Turkish police have now launched an investigation into the incident.
