Man livestreams his suicide on Facebook because his daughter chose to marry without his approval
Horrifying footage has emerged of a distraught father taking his own life by shooting himself in the head on Facebook Live because his daughter got engaged without his permission.
Ayhan Uzun, from Kayseri, central Turkey, can be seen speaking to the camera and shooting himself as shocked viewers watched and family members begged him to stop.
The 54-year-old explains his actions, said his final words and counted three before pulling the trigger.
'Goodbye, I am leaving, take good care of yourselves,’ Mr Uzun said.
In the live-streamed speech, 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.'
'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.'
Police have launched an investigation.
