Prague man puts neighbours in danger with suicide bid

A 52-year-old Prague man has been taken into psychiatric care after releasing gas in his apartment with a view to committing suicide. He phoned a helpline on Friday evening saying he was expecting to die once an explosion took place. However, his actions could have threatened the lives of the other residents in his building in the Břevnov district. The police and rescue workers managed to get to him before an explosion occurred.
