Extreme was last big one, 6 people, as granpa set up the gas and son,pregnant daughter in law, nanny and tw kids were simply gone because granpa was upset since son disagreed with his choice of new wife.
Then murder suicide, like bf kills gf and then kills himself, also very common.
Used to be a lot of suicides during big exam week, like college entrance ones. I do not think that is the case anymore.
Recently, there was some discussion in the news, ss a pretty, young woman jumped off Bitan bridge because she couldn't find a job.
We also had a close one here, the young laoban of the noodle shop. Friendly guy, always smiling. His family was devastated. Interestingly, the neighbors only commented on his lack of filial piety. *sigh*
