The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, says the agency has rescued a man who attempted suicide at National Bus Stop, Ikeja.

He made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos. According to him, the man allegedly fell from a height on Saturday and a distress call was made to the emergency agency. He said that the alleged ‘suicider’ was rescued by LASEMA officials alive.

He explained that when his team got to the scene, they met an adult male who sustained an open lacerated wound on the heel of his left leg. Mr Oke-Osanyintolu said that the victim sustained suspected fracture at the distal end of the right tibia on account of alcohol intoxication and suicide attempt.

“Information gathered at the scene of incident was that the adult man fell from height with a view of suicide attempt,” he said. The man was immediately taken to Ikeja General Hospital for further treatment.
