A 22-year-old man can either be the luckiest or must unlucky man in the world, as he attempted to commit suicide twice in the same day, but survived both attempts.

The man attempted twice to take his own life on Interstate 79 in southwestern Pennsylvania on his way to work Tuesday morning.

Police say within 30 minutes, the man tried committing suicide twice, first jumping out of a moving car, and then stepping in front of a truck.

The man survived both attempts and was later hospitalized.

Investigators said that the first incident took place at around 7:45 AM on Tuesday, as the man jumped out of the car that was driving him to work in Canonsburg, about 15 miles south of Pittsburgh.

The man then made a second attempt to end his life a half hour later, when he climbed over a guard rail onto the southbound shoulder on the South Central Avenue Bridge, and then stepped in front of a oncoming tractor-trailer.

The truck tried to avoid hitting the man, but ended up knocking the man out of his shoes.

The man then jumped up, grabbed his shoes, and proceeded to work as if nothing had happened.

He was later found at his job nearby and was taken to Canonsburg Hospital, then flown to a Pittsburgh hospital for further treatment.

Maybe the man will have a new lease on life after surviving both incidents.
