"no signs of physical illness"? If you jump off a roof then that's mental illness!

A lack of history doesn't mean a lack of illness. Many individuals don't receive the help they need due to the fear of 'losing face' either themselves or their family. This is one aspect of society I hate, more important to look respectable rather than seek help and that will shame the family bla bla bla. Very primitive and backward thinking.

The man also showed that he was selfish as he should have checked to make sure the coast was clear, look before you leap!
