ANKARA: A distressed 54-year-old man filmed his own suicide live on Facebook because his daughter was getting married without his consent.

Ayhan Uzun from Turkey can be seen speaking to a camera in a lengthy rant about his family before taking a gun and shooting himself in the head.

He said: ‘I am livestreaming tonight, and it is my will, I do not want the ones who put me in this position to attend my funeral.’ He pulls the trigger on the count of three after adding: ‘Goodbye, I am leaving, take good care of yourselves.’

Mr Uzun, who was alone at his home, revealed that he only learned about his daughter’s engagement in a telephone call. Mr Uzun said: ‘On my daughter’s happiest day (her engagement), they called me and said to me: “Father come have a treat”.’

‘Nobody asked about me. Nobody treated me like a man. My father-in-law took my place and without having a right he approved my daughter’s wedding. ‘Nobody said this girl’s father is alive. Though I would have waited for my daughter and family to say to me: “Come father, be with us.”

‘My wife called me and she told me. I said to her why didn’t you come to tell me, and she said: “We cannot make a personal visit to you…” ‘Maybe some of you will call this a show. I do not want anybody to go through this thing that I am going through. ‘A little later I will put an end to my life with the gun I am holding in my hands.’

During his livestreamed speech, friends and relatives sent comments begging him not to kill himself. However, Mr Uzun ignored them and went through with his threat.
