  1. Man Complains Bad Rope Spoiled His Suicide

    BUCHAREST (Reuters) - A Romanian man plans to complain to consumer authorities about the poor quality of a rope he used in a failed attempt to hang himself, Romanian papers reported Thursday.

    "You can't even die in this country," 45-year-old Victor Dodoi was quoted as saying in the daily Adevarul.

    The newspaper said Dodoi's relatives found him hanging from a tree in his garden and managed to cut the rope with a knife. He was taken by horse-drawn cart and then by ambulance to a hospital in the northern town of Botosani.

    Dodoi said he would file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Authority about the quality of the rope, which was easily cut, as soon as he is released.

    If he were in America, he could sue the rope manufacturer for producing faulty merchandise .
