South Korean "Healing Center" Shuts People Inside Coffins to Prevent Suicide


The Hyowon Healing Center in Seoul, South Korea is making people stage their own death by shutting themselves inside coffins in an attempt to curb the country´s high suicide rates.

People suffering from depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts are asked to write final letters to their family. Then they get into coffins as the lights are lowered. The lids are closed, and it stays that way for 10 minutes.

"The head of the center tells them: ´Now you know what death looks like. You are alive. Fight for Korea," French photographer Francoise Huguier, who witnessed one of the sessions, says.
