Bizarre suicide in NYC

NEW YORK – A Port Jervis man decapitated himself Monday when he wrapped a chain around a pole and the other end around his neck, got in his car and then gunned it. The chain severed his head. 

Reuters identified the man as Tomas Rivera, 51, of Port Jervis, whose car kept going down the street until it struck a parked car.

New York City Police said the suicide occurred at 9:20 a.m. in the Hunts Point neighborhood of the Bronx.

The New York City Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an investigation, a police department spokesman said.
