South Korea has the

South Korea has the highest suicide rate in the developed world. In Suicide Watch we follow Hyung-Geun Suh who is the Captain of the Yeoudio Water Rescue Unit. His unit is responsible for rescuing people who are attempting suicide by jumping into the Han River. His team faces the stark reality of life and death on a daily bases as they jump into the cold waters of the Han river. Sometimes to rescue a person, sometimes to recover a body.

While they are sailing, underneath them there are 1000 of bodies they haven't found out yet. That is so scary.

I wonder how many foreigners they have saved

Shardae Greenwood

It's sad because if I killed myself ik my mum would too.

South Korea is darker than you may think. You may think that South Korea is awesome but thats far from the truth

That’s why I did not jump of a bridge because I will get rescued so there’s no use

C U T S

it's sad how those people in the car don't get out and ask them what's wrong before they jump

Ken Regarding

I’m going to jump that bridge

ᅮᅮ

ya, i wanna suicide
Im teenager
living in Korea

Ej Rosenberg

i called an american hotline but they told me to suck it up and hung up

Frozentime

No one should force anyone to live life at all cost. Suicide should be respected, it’s practically same as honorable samurai taking his own life instead of abusing government system on welfare.

bargh70

I thought eastern religions thought a philosophy of balance and inner peace. A system of pressuring young people to perform doesn't sound like it comes from their culture.

Amari Wallace

There are always people around you who are just like you. Who understands your pain, who knows what your going through. Who have been in the same situation as you. Reach out to people for help. Don't let stress and anxiety hurt you. Be strong enough to get help. Don't struggle in silence. If those closes to you don't understand you. There are friends around the world you can talk to. Don't let school or home cause you to give up. Stay strong, people will miss you even when you think no will.

Marvelous Tuaumu

I know your seeing my comment. But please read what I have to say. It could help you.







Please spend everyday with your loved ones cuz when time comes your going to regret not spending time with them. I regret not spending time with my grandpa and calling him everyday. Because when he passed away, he passed away not knowing how grateful i was to have him in my life, he passed away not knowing how i missed him everyday. I will never forgive myself for not knowing my grandpa needed someone to be with him and I wasn't there. I was so caught up in life that I only cared about getting attention and getting friends, and impressing people. That I forgot what was truly important which is "family". So please tell your family how grateful you are for what they have done.

Sebastian VH

bless these workers

Samuel-REMAKE

Seems like suicide is the national sport of South Korea.

OfCourseWhyNot

I want so bad to help with rehabilitation and to give people hope, I want to so bad. I have felt suicidal many times and I think saving people is so admirable but I do wish there was a program or resource to help them not get to this point of despair

If you know a friend rn who is depressed. Ask your friend if they want to talk, let them know you love them. Tell the truth.
Let them know that

Yogibearsbabymama

instead of having “a meaning” to life, you should be having many meanings to life. small ones that seem irrelevant matter just as much. your goals & meanings in life can range from finishing a new anime series to becoming a doctor. they’re all equally important

Julian Rai

Why don't they just make the railing taller and harder to climb?

John Ramirez

Sometimes suicide crosses my mind because i feel like i'm not good at anything and I felt like my life has no direction, but what only keeps me going is my family who sincerely love me even though we are not that rich. It came to a point where I cried in front of them and they just hugged me and comfort me telling me how much they love me, that they i realized that I was being selfish, what if I committed suicide? they would also be depressed.

Sonal Suresh

Huge respect to the team .

Pebble Beach

Imagine drowning yourself to escape your pain ?

Steff SK

God's work

돈데크만

As a Korean, my country has changed so much in a really short time. I am really sad.

John Hattan

Hello ! I wanna say that if your life is too stressful in Korea, don’t die ! Just go elsewhere, do your best to move !
It’s better than death, and it’s less painful for your family.

scareglare

Wow, one minute in and I already know that this video is VERY different than the Vice video on Japan's Aokigahara forest, which is a very peaceful and touristy destination but also a hotspot where people go to kill themselves. (If you're reading this and have those thoughts, please talk with someone. Could be me. Let's just talk about this!)

Lol this video feels like a blockbuster action thriller. Both South Korea and Japan are really struggling with their suicide rates. Please don't suffer in silence. Let's start a conversation! Let's just talk.

Me Me

This is not an easy job to do... To see that happen so often

pmevsfçfhjn lfoejnj şjlfzjn ıbzbui

We all know there are suicidal people watching this,and I'm one of them.

이민수

죽고싶어도 못죽네...

Mortuus M

Rest In Peace to those who have passed. Thank you to the rescuers. ❤️

Marvelous Tuaumu

I used to be suicidal. Because I lost someone very close to me. It has been a year since he passed away. And I would do anything to bring him back. I cried everyday for a year because he passed away. And I thought to myself, he wouldn't want me to be like this, he didn't just raise me so that I could cry and and be depressed, he raised me to be strong. People are in your life for a reason. And I am glad I got to meet someone like him. So me being suicidal not only harms me but harms people around me. LIVE YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST. :)

flake snow

Too many people in seoul. 50 millions citizens live in this nation which is half size of UK. That's insane! At least 10 millions need to decrease

David Cho

These guys are true heroes. To sacrifice your own mental well being to help others. I can imagine the mental toll this takes on a person. I wish them well and I hope they get the recognition they deserve.

Liam Pinkham

At the start when that guy jumped I don’t think it is high enough to kill u so it will be very painful but can’t kill atleast I don’t think it can

Grant

Is the bridge high enough to kill people, I know a lot of people that jump from what looks to be similar heights for fun.

davveist

Why would you jump from a bridge that is too low, that's just stupid.

Life Reflections

It's mostly because of overwork and isolation culture..in addition to the sensitive personality is more common in South Korea and Japan comparing to the other nations..
But.. It's totally nothing when you compared to dying from being jobless and poor.. Seeing dead living hopeless people sleeping and begging all the time in the streets..
I'm talking as a Yemeni youth who is considered a walking dead creature in Yemen right now
I wish I have that opportunity.. Maybe I would at least alive inside..!
So depressed.. So numb..!
So.. Plz be more appreciative for what you have.. Remember that other people got nothing.. Maybe you take things for granted.. That you see them as nothing and don't matter.. to you but other people in my country for example.. Dream about having the smallest thing you have which you take for granted..
Stay save.. Stay alive and remember you the reason of someone's happiness so don't pass your pain to them..

5:01 - 5:11 is very sad :(

Alyssa Jures

imagine if that boy would be like : um i was just practising my swimming and diving ;-;

FireFly 2

Isn`t that "Bridge of life" is the one that tripled(not sure bout the numbers) the suicides when authorities named it like that?

D DeWitty

America need to form groups like this. I see much value in this.

Hayley Ballis

Basic decency and humanity has been forgotten and we live in a cruel and unforgiving world, most people lose their ability to care for others, everybody is mainly focused on themselves and don't have the time for somebody experiencing mental health issues.

There's also toxic positivity when people try and tell you ways to cheer up when in reality it's not that simple, the problems somebody face is usually complicated and long term problems.

The worse part about this is even when you do get admitted inside a psychiatric institute you get abused and your property gets stolen by other patients, the ambulance and police treat mental health clients quite badly and if you complain it gets covered up which only further adds trauma to somebody.

Although I'm not specifically talking about South Korea but another countries mental health system.

Christina White

why are there so many attempted suicides in korea?

superextranova 21

Once again, the koreans never stop amazing me with their inovation 2:20

Thicc Boi

I believe in a god and in an afterlife I’ve tried to commit suicide before but religion saved me. I don’t believe there is just Christianity I believe that god showed himself differently to every culture. It’s okay if you don’t believe in a god or an afterlife but please don’t try to change someone’s mind. It really fucks with them when people tell them that there is nothing. Some people on the internet made me change my mind for a bit and that’s one of the reason all my past problems came to me and Almost pushed me to suicide so please don’t be a dick and let people believe in something

The Emperor of Holy Terra

Why bother saving their lives? They choose to commit suicide, so let them be.

Dave40

We have like this in Melbourne, they just installed a tall fence, so they can’t jump over!

Tra Nhu

Omg.

Elaine Higham

Do they have people they can talk to like we have in the UK , like the Samaritans, sometimes physiatrist don’t help.

HiImPlay Music

when he jumped off the bridge in the first second my stomach dropped

Ringo

suicidal korean girl here.. just sucks.. i know how these people feel.

Chandler Ramirez

It’s so creative and efficient America should have this

AnimePal 99

I think young K-pop stars have it very rough. What if they don't do well in their Career? What if they fail? They don't know where to focus, on their studies or on their career.
Every student their have enough stress. I can't imagine me being a student in Korea.

Kim Il Sung

North Korea is the best Korea.

ThatOneMunchkin

People who fake depression and post it on their Snapchat stories are complete dicks they aren’t suffering their making others suffer

Jean Notario

I appreciate the effort but some people just dont want to be saved...

Cocksukin Mobile

1000 people commits suicide every month***

Well that's more than what amount of people dies in iraq per month in the war.......

Just a horrifying perspective

Smooth Criminal

Weaklings!!! They forgotten how their fathers and grandfathers fought for their land.. stupid.. over a small problem they end their lives..

Myrna Chua

Thinking of ending your life through suicide because nobody cares or love you? You feel sad because of this... think hard, YOU love yourself!! That is why you are hurt by the fact that nobody cares... but why should you care about what they think or feel? You are you. Important thing is YOU LOVE YOURSELF. RESPECT YOURSELF. TRUST YOURSELF. YOU and YOU ALONE has the power to turn every challenge into an opportunity for you to improve. Life is like a wheel, when your on the top, there's only one way to go... down. When you are down, there's only one way to go... UP!

Derp

I love you guys doing this work!

Iam silent

With CV19 More are dying! SAVE YOUNG KOREAN PLEASE!!!

AnimePal 99

I don't live in Korea but I often have these thoughts. I am waiting for One Piece to conclude and staying alive for my parents. I hope I find something better in my life

NEO CON WAR HAWK

Imagine the pain and sadness of the people who try and take there own lives.
All suicide leaves behind is more sorrow and pain.
It dose not end anything but someones life.

Spring Flower

Gave me one reason to not Suicide&*/#

what's my name?

I went by that bridge when I was there in 2019, higher rail and more emergency phones now. The rail thing with messages on were not that clean I can tell you that much.. the whole thing broke my heart...

24kRecxnz

Lets take a minute of silence for the 30 percent that didn’t make it...like when you finished so I know how much did it with me,god bless you all

Quy Fenu

Ya Allah ampunilah dosa kami semua yang setuju like.

Mek-Anne Channel

Its not the celebrities fault if they commit suicide and thats how it lead youngsters to imitate it. Suicide is a choice of people, its about how they sees life is being unfair to them. Don't say they imitate them coz all people minds are different.

A A

To anyone reading this message who is struggling, as cliche as this sounds it does get better, and if it doesn’t feel like it will know there’s people who love and care for you truly, you are beautiful and special in your own way, and I know I don’t know you but your on this earth for a reason. Get the help you need, you are valuable and worthy of being happy. I love you ❤️

The $adisfiction Experience

:(

Volly

I’m having suicidal thoughts this made me happy

Niki Wonoto

I feel so alone that nobody cares even if I die
I am severely depressed & suicidal. I feel so alone, nobody cares, even if I die.
I’m 38 years old loser & failure. Maybe better to just die.

poop yes

if i ever think of doing that i hope nobody makes a big deal of it and just let me be

superextranova 21

Also, why would 1.1k people dislike this?

Marvelous Tuaumu

People who hate on you and tries to bring you down are weak. And responding to them makes you just as weak as them. YOU ARE STRONG. BE YOU. LIVE YOUR LIFE. YOU WERE BORN TO LIVE YOUR LIFE, YOU WEREN'T BORN TO BE JUDGED BY LIFE AND TO LET LIFE CONTROL YOU. YOU CONTROL LIFE.

Mattstack 911

No one cares when you live. But, when it comes to wanting out, they want to stop u as if they cared smh

sin

This is a topic that needs to be discussed more..

Manisha Sinhababu

If 43 people die everyday to suicide in South Korea to put that into perspective in South Korea only 803 people are born every day , so that's a lot of people .

TBH, you don't stand in front of the door during a breach, 2 reasons, you have to take cover behind concrete to avoid fire and, for this particular situation it's a dark room and outside is day light, anyone can spot you shadow from the other side at the door's bottom and shoot through the door. But then again, they are just Police not spc ops unit.??
