Scientist, 104, who 'regrets' his long life dies as Swiss euthanasia clinic

Making the most of it David Goodall tours the Basel University Botanical Gardens with three of his grandchildren and two of their partners the day before his planned assisted suicide

With assisted suicide illegal in his home country of Australia, scientist David Goodall of Perth traveled to Basel, Switzerland to die at the facility of the assisted suicide advocacy group Life Circle. And in his final minutes, he listened to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, best known for its last movement Ode to Joy, reportedly passing away shortly after the piece of music finished.

As it happened, Goodall was not "prevented", even though there were those who had opposed him travelling to Switzerland to end his life.

Goodall "died peacefully" in Basel, tweeted Nitschke, of Exit International, the organisation which helped Goodall take his own life.

Goodall, a botanist and ecologist who was thought to be Australia's oldest scientist, said on his 104th birthday last month he had simply lived too long. "It's my own choice to end my life tomorrow and I look forward to that and I'm grateful to the Swiss nation to make that possible", he added, expressing optimism his story will help forward the cause he was so passionate about.

The man arrived at euthanasia from Australia.

The Australian biologist had travelled to Switzerland to take advantage of the country's assisted suicide laws.

Mr Nitschke said that before he died, Mr Goodall had to answer "several questions so he knew who he was, where he was and what he was about to do".

Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is out of intensive care after emergency surgery on Saturday on a brain hemorrhage. This was not how the Italian would have chosen to bow out if this was his last home match at Stamford Bridge.

The British-born scientist, David Goodall, said his life had been "rather poor" recently and he was happy to end it. For years, Australia has banned such practices, but in November, the state of Victoria became the first to pass a euthanasia bill, which, by summer 2019, will allow terminally ill patients to end their lives.

While not terminally ill, Goodall told reporters from across the globe that he had simply stopped enjoying life at his advanced age.

Goodall mentioned he expected that his narrative would contribute into the legalization of assisted dying in different nations.

During his last press conference Wednesday, he explained his reasons for his big decision.

The story of the academic, who is one of the first Australians to undertake the procedure due to old age rather than a terminal illness, attracted global headlines and further inflamed a highly divisive debate.

"Luckily my family who are in various parts of Europe and America have rallied round and come to see me, and I welcome the opportunity to see them, which I probably wouldn't have had if I hadn't pursued this Swiss option", he told journalists.
