Suicide is an epidemic that we consider to be a modern thing. While suicide rates have worsened in the US  and are expected to worsen in developing countries, people have taken their lives about as long as we have the tools and the knowledge to do so. It's a tragic event for everyone involved, especially the friends and family members of the transferred person who left tens, hundreds of thousands or, in the case of some celebrity suicides, millions of people with questions, panic, and fear. Suicide compels us to think of our own mortality and the fragility of our own mental state – how vulnerable we are to a depression or a false life that leads us in the wrong direction, giving us what is at least tangible as worthless life proves for?
With suicide, death is not safe, not even close. There are many more suicide attempts than actual suicides (25 attempts for each death), and those who try to kill themselves must live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. While many assume that a bullet on the head is a clear path to successful suicide, this is not really guaranteed, and many people have shot themselves in the head and learned that they are telling about it. Here are ten cases of those individuals who have survived a head shot suicide attempt.

But David was very popular at the time and did not even get unconscious. He sat down on the floor while Amy called the ambulance and held two halves of his forked head together. He was able to speak and told everyone how sorry he was for what he had done.
