He wants to end it and threatens to throw himself into a quarry, but the prompt action of the carabinieri makes him desist from his insane and insane gesture. The story took place on Sunday afternoon in Ugento and featured a 37-year-old local, married and father of two children. The man reached the quarry, which is located on an old road that leads Ugento to Melissano, crossed the net and reached the edge of the quarry with a chasm more than 40 meters deep. His intentions were clear and they were discovered after a message sent from his smartphone to some relatives announcing his intention to take his own life.
At the basis of this decision, apparently from the first reconstructions, there were family problems and vicissitudes. The relatives who had received the message were the first to arrive on the spot, trying to make him desist from the insane gesture, but without success. Providential, however, was the intervention of the Carabinieri of the Operational and Radiomobile Nucleus of the Compagnia di Casarano who, with courage, approached the 37-year-old and rescued him. The military were three. One tried to calm him down by talking to him calmly; the other stood beside him and the third intervened to block him and remove him from the dangerous area.
