Superintendent Jay Naicker said the Shoprite Checkers store in Richards Bay had been ready to close on Monday when the man wandered in and headed for the meat department. "He just walked in, went to the band saw machine and switched it on," Naicker told Reuters. "Apparently he knew what he was doing. He put his neck to the blade and it cut about half way through before he fell to the floor." Naicker said the man, later identified as 31-year-old Emmanuel Gumbi, was pronounced dead at the scene. He said police had turned up no motive for the suicide, which stunned staff and shoppers at the store in northern Kwazulu-Natal province.

Don't you wonder if the store is going to buy a new meat cutting saw, or just clean it and keep using it? Eeeeeeeewww.

Thats messed up. I wonder if they switched the blade before they cut the next slab of meat.

I have to admire the guy. At least he didn't take the easy way out. I've heard of alot of different ways to commit suicide but this is a first. Two thumbs up for originality. Two thumbs down for thinking there was no other way out of whatever hell he was in.

Buddy of mine in AL used to do that. Got in trouble a bunch of times for taunting the live lobsters in front of customers.
