Man Seriously Hurt After Attempted Suicide In Starved Rock

Posted by wlpo on June 10, 2010

The man who tried killing himself yesterday at Starved Rock State Park is being treated at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

Conservation Police aren’t giving out his name but say he’s 47 years old and from Palos Heights.  His injuries are considered serious.

He was found unresponsive in an SUV parked at the guest parking lot of Starved Rock Lodge by a maintenance worker.  An officer busted out the passenger’s side window to reach the man.  Officials say a helium tank hose was running and all the windows were up in the SUV.

The incident happened just after noon Wednesday and brought out a Hazmat crew.
