How tragic! A new father committed suicide in the Texas hospital room his wife had just given birth in — only one hour after the baby arrived!
Kendra Nobles should have been so excited on August 11 after she welcomed a baby, but the happy time was cut short by tragedy after her husband Michael Carl Nobles committed suicide in front of her in the Houston hospital room!
Man Commits Suicide In Texas Maternity Ward 1 Hour After Wife Gives Birth
Police explain that Michael and Kendra could be heard arguing inside Kendra’s hospital room at Willowbrook Methodist Hospital about an hour after Kendra had given birth to their child. Then Michael, 32, pulled out a pistol and shot himself in front of his wife. Luckily the newborn baby was not in the room at the time and the new mother was not injured, otherwise this horrible tragedy could have been so much worse.
He was flown to nearby trauma hospital Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, reports KHOU-TV.
Michael’s family explains that he was “distressed for some time,” before his August 11 suicide, according to The Daily Mail‘s reports.
How Did A Gun Get Into The Maternity Ward?
The hospital reportedly has a “no guns policy,” but Michael was able to get a pistol into the maternity ward. The fact that Michael was able to bring a gun into the hospital has left other patients concerned about the hospital’s security. But the gun also offers clues that Michael was planning something terrible from the beginning
Our thoughts are with the family at this difficult time.
