Man tries to commit suicide after being forced to marry an ugly bride

Groom Tries Drowning Himself After Seeing Ugly Bride

By The Daily Mail

A Chinese groom was so upset at being forced to marry an ugly bride that he tried to commit suicide.

Police officers were called to a lake in the city of Shiyan in the central Hubei province, after receiving reports that a man had been spotted attempting to kill himself by drowning.

According to theĀ People’s Daily Online, the would-be groom was discovered floating face down in the lake but was pulled from the water alive and is expected to make a full recovery.

Describing the moment he discovered the groom, police officer Hou Kunshan said: ‘I saw a man floating in the water face down. We couldn’t see his condition but when I got closer I could see that it was rather serious.’

The police officer immediately dived straight into the water to save the drowning man – not even taking them time to remove his jacket before doing so.

‘I first dragged him towards the wall but as I knew I didn’t have the strength to get him out of the water alone I put him near the wall and waited for the fire brigade to arrive,’ he said.

When the firefighters arrived at the scene they used safety ropes to winch the man to safety.

He was taken to the local hospital for observations and is now expected to make a full recovery.

Police officers later asked the groom why he attempted to commit suicide and he revealed that he was being pressured into an arranged marriage that he was very unhappy about.

‘This man was very unhappy with an arranged marriage his family had organised. They had found him a girlfriend but he wasn’t very happy with her looks and under the pressure of his family he decided to take his own life,’ Officer Hou said.

Qan Tsui, 25, who took photos of the rescue said: ‘He was fully clothed and floating face down in the water…He was unconscious and I thought he was dead.

‘When the police arrived one jumped in and dragged him ashore with the help of foremen who put a rope around his chest to pull him out before pumping his chest. They saved his life.’
