Taipei, July 18 (CNA) The father of a burn victim in the June 27 colored powder explosion at a water park in New Taipei committed suicide Saturday, apparently from stress and sadness over his son’s condition.
Police said the 63-year-old man, surnamed Wang, went missing after he and his wife visited their second son at the Linkou branch of Chang Kung Memorial Hospital on Saturday morning.
His wife reported that her husband, who was a taxi driver, went missing afterwards.
Their eldest son found that his father had hanged himself in the family’s old, unoccupied home in Chungli. The father did not leave a suicide note. [FULL STORY]
