A Montenegrin man made an unsuccessful suicide attempt in front of shocked funeral home staffers after he purchased a coffin, climbed in and shot himself.
Milo Bogisic paid cash for the casket at Palma Funerals in Podgorica before he wrote out his obituary and climbed into the coffin. He then put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger.
The 52-year-old man survived the blast when the bullet passed through his chin and nose, missing his brain, Ananova reports.
Police said Bogisic was having family problems and was even more devastated when he “hadn’t managed to end it all.”
To add insult to injury, the funeral home refused to give him a refund on the coffin.
