Man fails at 2 suicide attempts on interstate

CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania state police say a man twice tried to kill himself on Interstate 79 in southwestern Pennsylvania before going to work.

The Associated Press is not identifying the 22-year-old Washington, Pa. man because of the nature of the incidents, but police say he first tried to end his life by jumping out of a moving vehicle that was driving him to work in Canonsburg, about 15 miles south of Pittsburgh. That happened about 7:45 a.m. today.

About a half hour later, police say the man stepped over a guide rail into the path of a tractor-trailer which tried to avoid the man but knocked him out of his shoes.

Troopers from the Washington barracks say the man jumped up, grabbed his shoes, slid down a hillside and walked to work. He was since been flown to a Pittsburgh hospital.

He should take this as a sign that God is not done with him yet, and it is clearly not his time to leave this earth...

Someone please tell this fellow that because of term limits, Obama only has 4 more years to go. Then things will drastically improve. Just be patient.
