Actor Jason Alexander has reached out to his former Seinfeld co-star Daniel von Bargen after he shot himself in the head.
The 61 year old, who played Mr. Kruger on the hit TV sitcom, attempted suicide on Monday (20Feb12), but decided against ending his life after surviving the gunshot.
The diabetic actor told emergency services he was set to have his toes amputated as a result of his health condition and he put a gun to his temple because he didn't want to go through with the surgery.
He was taken to hospital in Ohio, and Alexander was stunned by his friend's drama.
In a post on his page, he writes, "My best wishes to Daniel Von Bargen. I hope he is surrounded by people who love him tonight."
