A man tried to end his life by gas inhalation, barricading himself on an 8 berth yacht next to the amusement park in Funchal.
The alert was given around 7 pm to the Madeiran Volunteer Firefighters, who activated a team of seven elements, two vehicles, an ABS and a fire-fighting team.
When they arrived at the scene, they found the victim unconscious. They unplugged the gas bottle and carried the man out of the boat. The nan regained consciousness when being transported to the Emergency room of the Hospital Dr. Nélio Mendonça, but caused several damages in the ambulance, while in transport.
