A Ghanaian man has attempted to commit suicide after his girlfriend broke up with him.
The video of the man, posted on social media, shows him in the midst of his friends who were obviously angered at his move and were all chastising him.
The man had set beside himself a substance to be consumed to take his life.
If not or the timely intervention of his friends, he would have gone ahead to commit the act.
He had already written a suicide note, which he dropped by the bed and could be seen sobbing with serious intensity.
He was eventually rescued by his friends.
