Facebook tip prevented Pa. man’s suicide

A friend in Calif. saw a distraught post and alerted Pa. cops

By PoliceOne Staff

UNIONTOWN, Pa. — Police were able to prevent a suicide thanks to a concerned friend who alerted authorities after reading a Facebook post.

A southern Pennsylvania man had put a message on the social networking site that said he was “going to end it all,” which prompted a friend from Stanford, Calif. to call Uniontown police, Fox News reported.

The suicidal man told police he wanted to kill himself, either by hanging or by drug overdose.
