Ben Matchap, admin of Wake Up Singapore, deliberately changing the headlines of Strats Times article on his fb fan page and attack Straits Times on things they never wrote?
The whole article he shared didn’t even mention anything about the happiness index let alone the headlines!
SINGAPORE – The golden years are losing their lustre for a rising number of the elderly here, with more taking their lives in the later phase of life.
Last year (2014), 126 seniors aged 60 and above killed themselves. This is a jump of nearly 60 per cent from the 79 seniors who committed suicide in 2000. There were 95 of them in 2010.
While the suicide rate in Singapore has remained at between eight and 10 suicides per 100,000 residents over the past decade, the proportion of the elderly among those who take their lives each year has risen.
