Darwin Awards --- A weird one

This guy did everything wrong but got what he wanted in the end.

FRANCE, Jacques LeFevrier left nothing to chance when he decided to commit suicide. He stood at the top of a tall cliff and tied a noose around his neck. He tied the other end of the rope to a large rock. He drank some poison and set fire to his clothes. He even tried to shoot himself at the last moment. He jumped and fired the pistol. The bullet missed him completely and cut through the rope above him. Free of the threat of hanging, he plunged into the sea. The sudden dunking extinguished the flames and made him vomit the poison. He was dragged out of the water by a kind fisherman and was taken to a hospital, where he died of hypothermia.

Well, ya know...that is either a blessing or a curse.

Either he is around for a reason OR, this is reminiscent of his whole life and he couldn't even get this right...

Was his death technically suicide after all that?
How very bizarre!
