From another article about David Goodall:
Goodall attempted to take his own life a few weeks ago but ended up waking up in hospital instead, where doctors judged that he was a risk to himself. He was only discharged after an independent psychiatric review commissioned by his daughter.
The scientist described his treatment as "cruel," adding, "they oblige one to stay alive, when one hasn't got anything to live for."
Goodall said he felt "resentful" that he had to travel to Switzerland to die, and hoped that his story would lead the Western Australian government to change its laws.
