A hermit's lot is not a happy one

This is a sad and somewhat disturbing story. A guy lives alone in a secluded trailer. No telephone and no neighbores within miles. The wind blows a tree down which falls across the trailer, pinning the fellow's legs under it. He apparently thinks that no one will ever come to rescue him and he is within reach of a pistol. So, he shoots himself.

A neighbor stopped by to check on him on Christmas day and found his body. Had he hung on a little while longer he would, in fact, have been rescued.
