Fate. God. Karma. What ever you want to call it works in mysterious ways. Better to be pulled from the river Thames than crossing the river Styx.

He didn't save anyone. The authorities came for him and found the other as a result.

I do remember a story where a dial-up BBS operator was planning on suicide. Someone logged on, and they used one of the most annoying features the BBS systems have, and that is the page feature. Well, figuring she didn't have anything to lose, she answered the page feature. It was a man who had just lost his job, wife, house, family, etc., and guess what he was talking about doing? She convinced him there was still stuff to live for and that he could pick himself up and rebuild his life. At the end of the call, she decided she wanted to live as well. So 2 suicidal people saved each other's lives.

Another suicide-related story from the same source:

http://www.mid-day.com/articles/lady-gaga-sav...

Lady Gaga wrote a suicidal fan. But why did the reporter have to mention that Gaga did Poker Face? That song has a reference to Russian Roulette in it.

"Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun
And baby when it's love if its not rough it isn't fun, fun"

Someone posted something about a girl bringing a gun to school with the intention of committing suicide. She tried to kill herself in front of her "boyfriend," but the pistol jammed. Guess what he did? He grabbed the gun, unjammed it, and handed it back to her. And she lifted it to her head again. A teacher witnessed the whole thing and tackled her, and the gun discharged into the wall, and nobody was harmed. She was sent away to get some "help," but after that, she never hung around that boy again.

Hope they sent the boy away for a little help as well.
