Dr. David Gordell, an Australian aged scientist had celebrated his 104th birthday and having decided that it is enough having lived that long and finally had bade goodbye forever to his children and their children and had ended his life after travelling to Switzerland. This heartbreaking news was reported by the foreign media.

He had even called for a news briefing prior to his death and had remarked that he had chosen death
with happiness in heart and that he is not prepared to suffer in life during the last period in life. The said doctor only suffered from weakness of sight and difficulty in walking and apart from it, has not suffered from any other sickness as such.

David Gordell who was an eminent Botanist and Environmental scientist was born in England and had migrated to Australia at the age of 34 years and had thereby acquired citizenship there. Why he chose Switzerland on purpose to put an end to his life by himself was because willful suicide was legally not permitted by Australia where he had acquired citizenship.  However, the methodology of committing suicide (euthanasia) is legal in Switzerland.

The deceased scientist has three sons and one daughter with 10 grandchildren and 15 nephews, nieces too, it was understood. In fact he bade them goodbye to them with their sanction. He thus finished his life last morning (10) in Basel, Switzerland at 'Life Circle Clinic' under medical supervision with a drip being administered on scientist David Gordell. He thus passed away listening to Beethoven's 5th symphony orchestra, it is reported.
