A Russian tourist has committed suicide in the toilet of a plane which was bound for Russia.

The man identified as 48-year-old Alexander Dokshin left his seat and made for the toilet when the plane which was flying from the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheikh to Samara, Russia was about to take off Daily Mail reports.

Some passengers who were sitting close to the deceased stated that he was talking to himself before he visited the lavatory.


After a while, when the flight attendants noticed he was missing they went looking for him and broke down the lavatory door before they could gain access to him. Some medical doctors on board the plane tried to revive Dokshin but they failed.

The deceased relatives have also revealed that he developed mental problems after he had a car accident in Thailand.

Russian Transport Committee has launched an investigation into the deceased death.

In other news, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has urged Nigerians to be wary of a false Davido’s airtime and data giveaway advert on social media.

Director, Public Affairs of NCC, Dr Ikechukwu Adinde made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

Adinde said that a group of scammers had rolled out an advertorial titled “Davido Airtime and Data Giveaway.”

He said the advert, which went viral, claimed that Davido was giving out free N5,000 airtime and 10GB internet data of all networks to celebrate his birthday.

“The Nigerian-American music star, songwriter and producer recently announced he would donate N250 million to various orphanage homes across Nigeria.

“In the advertorial, the general public was urged to hurry and get the gift by clicking on the links that supposedly redirect them to network sites, where they would be credited with airtime and data. This is a scam.”
