Jobless man throws self off balcony


Frosinone, May 30 - A young man who recently lost
his job threw himself off a balcony in the town of Arce south of
Rome Thursday in the latest in a spate of recession-linked
The 26-year-old, a recent university graduate, was
helicoptered to a Rome hospital with serious spinal injuries.
Italy has seen a series of suicides apparently
linked to economic difficulties in the last year but most have
been older people and not Italian youths, one in four of whom
are unemployed.
A fertiliser-factory owner killed himself near Pisa last
month while a man afraid of losing his job in an eyewear
factory near Belluno and a carpenter whose business was in
trouble in central Sardinia also took their own lives.
Also last month, three people - a married couple and the
woman's brother - committed suicide in Marche, gaining
front-page headlines and adding to a toll whose exact impact has
not been measured.
Businesses are closing at an unprecedented rate, employers'
associations report, while unemployment is at a record high in
Italy's worst recession for 20 years.
