League of Legends Pro attempts suicide

According to a popular Korean forum, Cheon Min-Ki from team AHQ Korea tried committing suicide by jumping from a twelve story building. Why would he do such a thing? Apparently his team's manager made him intentionally lose games to profit of illegal eSports bets. Crazily enough, his fall was broken by a ceiling.

Cheon stated this on the forums:

"I'm not in this world after 5 minutes, AHQ Korea was a team made by Noh to profit off illegal gambling, teammates didn't know and we had to fix games because of this. AHQ Taiwan never sponsored our team, it was a lie. I am sorry for all of this, and I can't tell you everything, but I'm leaving now as I can't deal with this anymore."

The next day a bystander heard Cheon screaming "help me" in the room that he fell in. As of right now, Cheon is currently recovering from the fall at a local hospital in stable condition. And thankfully enough, he is even out of the coma.

What would you do in this situation? Do you think Cheon actually did this because of his gaming career or because of his unfortunate upbringing that his friends always talked about?
