Anti-suicide nail boards go on Liuzhou Bridge
The Chinese city of Liuzhou has seen such an increase in suicide cases in recent years (due to financial and emotional worries) that they’ve gone ahead and placed anti-suicide nail boards along the bridge to prevent people from climbing and jumping off. The bridge only just opened in December but seeing as China’s suicide rate is among the highest in the world, this ought to place a little dent in the statistics. I’m hoping it does, anyway.
But which country takes the lead spot in most suicides per population? It’s Greenland.
