Making A Grave Mistake

February 20, 2009 at 4:18 pm

As odd suicide bids go, this one is rather impressive.

Milo Bogisic, 52, walked in to a funeral parlour in Podgorica, Montenegro, and paid cash for a coffin. Staff looked on bemused as he sat down and wrote his own obituary, but they weren’t expecting him to climb in to the casket and shoot himself in the head.

His aim was so bad that the bullet just went through his chin and nose. Paramedics saved his life, which apparently he’s not best pleased about. He was suffering from “family problems”.

The funny bit was that Palma Funerals wouldn’t give him a refund on the coffin, saying that one day he’ll get some use out of it.
