WARSAW, Poland (PIX11)
A military prosecutor in Poland attempted to take his own life Monday by shooting himself in the head after wrapping a news conference on the plane crash that killed the country's president.
According to reports, Mikolaj Przybyl shot himself inside his office shortly after dismissing reporters from the heated press briefing where he criticized media leaks from the ongoing probe into the 2010 crash.that killed President Lech Kaczynski and several senior Polish officials.
The suicide attempt was apparently a dramatic protest in a turf war between Poland's civilian and military prosecution services.
Przybyl, who is expected to survive, is recovering at a hospital in the western city Poznan.
