Daniel Von Bargen, A former TV star is was hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt at his home.  According to TMZ, Daniel von Bargen, best known for his portrayal of Mr. Kruger in “Seinfeld,” called police after shooting himself once in the temple at his Montgomery, Ohio home.

Several media outlets had him listed in critical condition.  “I’ve shot myself in the head, and I need help,” von Bargen, 61, told the 911 dispatcher.

Von Bargen, a diabetic, told the dispatcher that he was supposed to go to a hospital later that day to have some of his toes amputated because of complications from the disease.

He told the dispatcher that he “was not a very good [diabetic]” and also admitted to feeling depressed before his suicide attempt.

“One leg has already been amputated, and the other is already worthy of it,” von Bargen said.

“I have no children and no life, and I’m tired,” he said.

Police officers can be heard on the 911 call recording as they arrived at von Bargen’s apartment. They asked if he had any more guns in the house, and von Bargen told them he had just the one, which was lying on the bed next to him.
