A single father took his own life as he drowning in debt. 34-year-old Phillip Herron was trying to make ends meet to feed and clothe his three kids. On top of it, he was struggling to repay debts totaling £20,000 ($25,000) and faced eviction to due non-payment of rent. His debts were mostly from payday loans which are notorious for charging up to 1,000 percent interest, The Sun reported.
infidel: I raised 4 kids as a single Dad. Quit my job also. I was knocking down about 75k yearly. This was in 2000. I did have a 401 I cashed in. I worked odd jobs during school hours. But the bulk of our food came from hunting and fishing. Now they are all grown and I have nothing but wonderful memories. Three daughters all became nurses. My son is a fishing guide.
