Winning a lottery would definitely be a cause for celebration for any individual but sometimes things can go terribly wrong. While getting over Rs 8 crores can change be life changing, the very thought of losing such a sum can be life threatening.

42-year-old Jirawut Pongphan from Thailand hit the jackpot to win almost Rs 8.5 crore, but the next morning he discovered that the tickets were gone. Unable to claim the money without the tickets, Jirawut couldn’t live with the thought of how his life would’ve changed and what he had lost.

 

He then went on to shoot himself in the head and left a suicide note requesting people to not bully his family. The man was devastated and depressed ever since he lost the tickets as he wasn’t able to go to work.

What happened to the tickets is still unclear as it isn’t known if someone else came forward to claim the money.
