Phenomenal Failure
2001 At-Risk Survivor
Unconfirmed by Darwin

(February 2001, Michigan) A 28-year-old demolition worker attempted to commit suicide by washing down nitroglycerine pills with vodka. Normally suicide is not worthy of an At-Risk Survivor, but this man's failure was exceptional. After swallowing the pills, he tried to explode the nitroglycerine by repeatedly ramming himself into a wall.

He was treated for bruises and released from the hospital... with counselling.
