Unfortunately a couple took their own lives due to a series of medical bills that they cannot commit to.
The 53 year-old man and 50 year-old woman left two children behind, before jumping out of an office building window on the 9th floor around 5:45am Friday morning.
The Manhattan residents both had suicide notes in their pockets that disclosed why the made the decision to end their lives.
According to reports, one of the notes read “WE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE…Patricia and I had everything in life, but we both have medical issues, we just can’t afford the health care.”
Healthcare is a critical issue at this particular time in America and this time it resulted in suicide.
