In Bursa's Yıldırım district, Öztürk K. became angry when his truck
was impounded, so he climbed up on an electrical pole and threatened
suicide.  As firefighters arrived at the scene and set up an air mattress
at the base of the pole, power to the pole was cut.

Öztürk K. warned police "don't come close. I'll cut myself!"  He resisted

               Yıldırım district is within Bursa city.
