Ofakim Roof Collapse Likely a Botched Suicide Attempt


The roof collapse in an apartment in the southern community of Ofakim was likely caused by a botched suicide attempt. A 60-year-old man seems to have tried to kill himself by exploding a gas tank, causing the roof to implode.

The man was lightly wounded upon being rescued from within the rubble. He was subsequently transported by Magen David Adom staff to Soroka Hospital in Beer Sheva.
