” Australia Scientist Dies at Age 104 in Assisted Suicide in Switzerland “

David Goodall had flew from Australia to Switzerland for euthanasia, as the process is illegal in Australia.  The assisted suicide will be legalised in the Australian state of Victoria, but only from June 2019 and only for terminally ill patients of sound mind and a life expectancy of less than 6 months.  His quality of life had deteriorated, and in 2016 at the age of 102, the then-Professor was determined to be no longer fit to be at the university he was working at.

Born in 1914 in Britain and migrated to Australia in 1948 at the age of 34, his last moments on the 10th of May 2018 at age 104 was with his relatives and to the tune of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy.  His life ended in 2 minutes after the injection of Nembutal was given at the clinic in Basel in Switzerland.
