Rugby Player Suicide (after an accident left him paralyzed)

Daily Telegraph newspaper (UK's leading newspaper) is my hubby's dad's favorite to read every single day, his day wouldn't have completed without reading this newspaper. Anyway, it has become my favorite reading material too, aside from my Cosmo and OK! magazines. Now, that we are back at work in Angola, I check their website occasionally and this morning this is what I have read, a very sad story!!

The emails from the mother of rugby player Dan James, who killed himself in Switzerland after an accident left him paralyzed. They reveal the depth of the family's emotions.

"We returned from Switzerland on the 12 September after accompanying our 23 year old son who had been left tetraplegic after a rugby accident. Dan found his life so unbearable and had tried to commit suicide three times, other than to starve himself to travel to Switzerland was his only option. Whilst we were away some "well meaning" person involved with social services took it upon herself to call the police. This person had never met Dan before or after his accident and obviously gave no consideration for our younger daughters who had seen their big brother suffer so much, and the day before had to say goodbye to him. I hope that one day I will get the chance to speak to this lady and ask if she had a son, daughter ,father, mother, who could not walk, had no hand function, was incontinent, and relied upon 24 hour care for every basic need and they had asked her for support, what would she have done?! Our son could not have been more loved and had he felt he could live his life this way he would have been loved just the same but this was his right as a human being, nobody but nobody should judge him or anyone else."
