After hearing that one of
the patients in a mental hospital had saved another from a suicide attempt by
pulling him out of a bathtub, the hospital director reviewed the rescuer's file
and called him into his office.
"Mr. Haroldson, your records and your heroic behavior indicate that you're ready to go home. I'm only sorry that the man you saved later killed himself with a rope around the neck."
"Oh, he didn't kill himself," Mr. Haroldson replied. "I hung him up to dry."
