Charlotte, North Carolina – Tom Robinson, age 10, is being hailed as a hero today after saving his father’s life by preventing him from committing suicide. Says Tom, “My dad said he had quit smoking a couple years ago but last night I peeked into the backyard and saw an unlit cigarette sticking out of his mouth.” Tom goes on to say that he knew right then and there that his father didn’t want to live a full life anymore, so he grabbed his father’s gun, raced outside, and shot him in the leg to prevent him from lighting that cigarette and ending his life early.
Bob Robinson, age 42, could not be reached for comment but is expected to make a full recovery.
If you, or anyone you know does not want to live a healthy and full life, please seek the help you need. A slow suicide by smoking is never the answer.
