Housemates sprung into action to save an unidentified male Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) student who nearly took his own life at the Brunie Complex on campus.
He was spotted hanging loosely on the top floor of the five-storey building as his housemates tried to pull him to safety on Tuesday, July 4.
How things unfolded
In a viral video posted to @VOICE_of_KNUST, other students in the hostel, particularly females, could be heard crying as the drama ensued. There were loud cheers when his housemates finally rescued him.
Unconfirmed reports say he wanted to die due to poor marks. However, an alleged note said to have been written by the male student making the rounds online indicates he tried to end it all due to depression.
Since emerging on social media, including Twitter, people have been reacting in the comments section of @VOICE_of_KNUST.

Check on your friends because times are hard.
Attempting to commit suicide is a crime, bro.
Sad generation with beautiful pictures.
What is actually going on in KNUST!? Too many suicidal attempts to many tragedies happening. Can’t students just be students who go to school, graduate and make it home safe anymore?
