TEHRAN – An Iranian man has attempted to commit suicide at a hospital in the southern city of Shiraz in a bid to give up his organs to needy patients, a hospital official said Thursday.

Abdolreza B., 30, turned up at the hospital and then “shot himself with a Kalashnikov outside the operating theatre,” said the official.

“He is still alive. Two bullets went through his throat and exited at the back of his head. His brain was not badly damaged, but he’s not in a good state,” said the hospital official, who asked not to be named.

When police were called, they found an organ donor card together with a letter asking doctors to give his body parts “to sick people who need them”.
