Homemade suicide guillotine

`A man killed himself by ramming a carving knife into his skull with a homemade ‘guillotine’.

He rigged up a bizarre contraption to drop the knife down a 25ft drainpipe and into his brain.

The unnamed man tied the plastic drainpipe to an electricity pylon and suspended the knife from the top of the pipe with a rope.

Then he sat below the drainpipe and let go of the rope, sending the heavy knife plunging through his skull. [..]

A post-mortem examination revealed that the man died as a result of his head injury.’
