“Lost the Last Bet in Life”, a Last Year High School Placed Over Ten Thousand Dollars of Debts, Gambling on the Teams of the N.B.A., He’d Committed Suicide

Had he known better, but he didn’t!  From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A high school student, He from the city of Taichung disclosed to his classmate on the 10th that because he’d signed the gambling slips for NBA, he’d managed to owe over thirty thousand dollars’ worth of debts, that his life was over, “I’m going now!  Lost my final bet in life.”, the classmate immediately went to the police to report, and the police managed to find out where He was, but, it was too late, he’d already, committed suicide by burning charcoal in his bedroom already.

The 64th Police Precinct in Taichung on the afternoon of the tenth received a panicky high schooler who rushed in, and he’d shown the police the conversations he’d shared with He using LINE, told them that he worried, that He might commit suicide.  The police found his address, along with the records of members of his family, they’d notified the father, and, He’s father recalled how he hadn’t seen his son come out of his room, that it was odd, he’d broken into his son’s room, found that he was already dead, and there was also, a bowl of charcoal, burned, completely.  The coroners believed, that He had committed suicide by burning charcoal, and they will look into, whether or not He was forced to pay the debts he owed from signing the gambling slips or not.

And so, that, just shows, how easily they will fall, and, when you’re that young, you should NOT even BE into gambling, but this young man was, and, because he couldn’t pay up the debts, he felt his life was OVER, and committed suicide!

The Young Mother Who Was Saved from Suicide, “I’d Strangled My Two Children to Death”

From the Front Page Sections, translated…

A young married woman, Lin, awhile back, took her two young kids to commit suicide by overdosing, the two kids are dead, the woman was rushed to the hospital and is now, out of danger, the police officers yesterday went to interrogate Lin, she’d cried and told them that she was emotionally unstable that day, that she’d fed her kids some medication, waited until they passed out, then, strangled them both.

Lin was very emotional when the police interrogated her, mentioned how “in the current world, there’s nothing keeping us here, I don’t want to let them live, so they’d have to weather through more pains in the futures”, “After I’d killed them both, I’d tried committing suicide.”

Lin said, in the little over six years, she’d been troubled by mental difficulties, went to two clinics to see doctors, and got medicines, later she’d gone off her meds, and in the past year, she’d started back on them once more.

On the 27th of last month, in the afternoon, she’d driven her kids to Kenting, and, on the way, she’d become emotionally unstable again, and gone off the freeways, bought some fast food at a fast food joint in Mingshyong, then, took her kids to a motel, mixed the pills into their drinks, waited until her kids passed out, she’d strangled them, her daughter tried to fight, then, she’d strangled her daughter with a rope, then, she’d downed the rest of the pills.

Lin said, she wanted to commit suicide, and didn’t want to leave her kids, to become burdens to her families, decided to take them with her, that, was why she’d strangled them to death.  Lin also said, that she and her husband were getting along very well, other than the occasional altercations, there was NO economic stresses, nor was there affair on her husband’s part, or domestic violence.

After Lin woke up yesterday, the family members consoled her that everything was all right, that the kids are fine, that they’d been taken back to Taichung already, but Lin knew, that she’d killed her kids by strangulation, as the police was about to interrogate her, she’d started crying, and when she told them how she’d strangled her kids, she was crying so hard she couldn’t even talk, said that she is in deep regret.

Yesterday as the coroner’s autopsied the young children, they’d found that the muscles of the young girl’s hyoid muscles had hemorrhages, and that there were finger markings on her neck, that she’d died of suffocation, the coroners then took samples of the internal organs, and sent the sample to the justice department to determine if there are drugs in the systems.  Because Lin had histories in depression, she’s still in the I.C.U., with the police, keeping a close eye on her.

And so, this mother has a history of depression, and, she didn’t want to keep her kids on this earth without her, so that, was why she’d killed them first, then, attempted suicide, and now, she’s going to have to live with the fact, the guilt, that she’d MURDERED her own young, for what?  Her own selfish reasons!

A Father Couldn’t Continue to See His Son with Acute Lymphoma Suffer, So, He’d Let Him Go

From the MSN news pages in Taiwan, translated…

This, would be the biggest blessing for Yun-Han, because he won’t be made to suffer any longer; it’s also a blessing of our love toward him, and we wouldn’t blame each other for any of it.

“I’d told him, daddy says, you will totally get discharged from the hospital today.  Getting out of the hospital could mean going home, or going to the home in heaven, but, you WILL go home today!” at the end of the year four years ago, the C.E.O of the Carnegie Foundation in Taiwan, promised his seven-year-old son who’d been diagnosed with acute leukemia, Yun-Han Hei.

“I did keep my promise (meant the child did get discharged from the hospital on that day!)”, after he’d spoken, Li-Yen Hei started sniffling his nose.  His wife, Yuan Chu too, bid farewell to their son.

An hour after that, the young boy, Hei finally gave up his fight of a year and four days.

“I’m a fighter that won’t give up until the last second, and I feel, that it wasn’t time yet.  But, I’m real glad, that Li-Yen had reminded me to say my goodbye to our son.”  Chu told the press, with her beautiful smile.

Being able to say the proper goodbyes at the final stage of life, is a blessing in its own, for those who were survived, and those who’d passed away.

At first, Hei and Chu were onboard for the invasive treatment measures that their son had undergone.

Yun-Han had a high fever on Christmas Eve, and was rushed to the emergency room of NTU Hospital, and that same day, the doctors confirmed their diagnosis of acute leukemia, his white blood cell count rose up to forty thousand and he was immediately admitted into the children’s intensive care unit.

The doctor on duty at the E.R. that day was the expert on children leukemia, Xien-Tang Chou, who’d mapped out a plan of attack for the family, and he’d told the parents, that they’re working with St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Research Hospital in the U.S., plus, Hei’s younger brother, is the assistant manager of the Washington University Seattle hospital, he too, helped with the reading of the charts.

The parents ended up giving up on the treatment options, because they saw how much pain their son had undergone, and decided to let go of him, and, it must’ve been really hard, after all, the child is still very young, his life hadn’t even started yet, and, for the parents to give up on the treatment options, it must’ve been a really hard struggle, but, they decided it’s for the best, because they don’t want their young son to suffer so much, after all, the treatments are too painful for adult, and this, is a child we’re talkin’ ‘bout here…

Putting My Thoughts Down on Paper, Helping Me Through the Valleys of the Shadows of Doubts

On the loss of a loved one, translated…

That year, I’d gone to climb with my second youngest brother in Kenting, on the way back, we’d gone scuba diving by the shores, and because my younger brother was curious of the breathing apparatus, but he didn’t know how to use it correctly, and, he’d ended up, drowned from his nose, at the young age of nineteen, he was gone.

This accident caused my heart to shatter, a lively person had followed me out, and returned, as a dead corpse.  As his older sister, I felt it was my fault, that I’d not done right by my parents, and ever since, there’s this dark cloud, casting shadows over me, and I just couldn’t pull that from the roots, it got to the extent that my daily routines were affected, I kept trying to find ways, and, after a few group consultation sessions, I’d found an effective method for me.

There are many ways for psychological treatments, music, art, writing, every activity, I’d written down my own unsettlement through words, and afterwards, I’d feel that the weights had been lifted from my shoulders, and so, I’d started writing to my brother, and described the difficulties I’d faced, after he’d been gone, especially on how I couldn’t DARE to talk to my mother, because NO matter what I’d said, it couldn’t change the cruel reality, and, NO matter how hard I’d tried to make it up to her, it still couldn’t change the sorrows from the fact, that she’d had to bury her own son.

After I’d gotten used to the habit of writing things out, that sharp pain in my chest, with the passing of time, started getting better, I slowly understood, that I was NOT the cause of the accident, that changes will always come before tomorrow’s time, that I must cherish those around me even more, instead of soaking up in my own miseries, and make them worry for me, and that to stop blaming myself for his death, to live my life to the fullest, that, is the best attitude to handle this tragedy.

Time is a great medicine, other than missing my younger brother, I’d bravely talked to my mother about the past, and, my mother had already sublimated the events, “He’d become heavenly, and it’d beaten what we’re enduring down here on earth.”, this line had helped me get through the darkness from the sorrows of the loss, and returned me back to the bright side.

And so, in this sort of a tragedy, it’s hard, NOT to blame oneself, especially when you’re that closely related and involved with the person, and, the woman found an effective way to deal with the losses she’d felt from her younger brother’s death, through writing and going to group therapy, so she could feel that connectedness with those who’d had similar experiences.

Because She Wanted to Break Up with Him, He’d Strangled Her

 

From the Online Newspapers here, translated…

A twenty-three-year-old woman, Chien, early in the morning today, was found, strangled to death in her own kitchen, the police pointed out, that the woman had just broken up with a man of age twenty-eight for a year, the boyfriend came home from Taipei, and wanted to see her, but she’d said no.

The neighbors of the woman, a before eight o’clock in the morn today, found Chiu, wandering around the neighborhoods, and the woman’s mother, at eight-thirty, received a call from her work colleague, saying that she didn’t show up for work, she’d rushed home to check up on her daughter, found her daughter, strangled to death, and, at eight fifty, she’d called the cops, and rushed her child to the hospital, but, she was already dead.

The police believed, that Chiu is the primary suspect, and he didn’t return to him home in Chingshui, and so, the police are currently, tracking his whereabouts.

And, because this IS the preliminaries, we can only speculate, but, if this man DID kill his soon-to-be-EX, then, the man has a REALLY low E.Q., just because someone wants to break up with you, still doesn’t give YOU the right, to take their lives, does it, and, IF the boyfriend did it, he will NEVER be able to rest, because of HIS guilty conscience!
