British national fails suicide in Western Kazakhstan 10 сентября 2014, 23:48
Craig Christopher Midgley born in 1975 arrived to Kazakhstan to work at Karachaganak Petroleum Opening in March, 2014.
On September 8, at around noon the British national climbed a phone pole and stayed there for around three hours. The police that arrived at the site along with the emergency services and ambulance talked Midgley into getting down from the pole.
He did not put forth any demands and climbed down after local psychologists talked to him through an interpreter. Midgley was taken into the Uralsk hospital afterwards. His reasons for the suicide attempt are still unknown.
Midgley is leaving Kazakhstan to go back to Britain on September 10.
