His brother, Danny Cole (pictured left), told The Falmouth Packet the dad-of-two had not been trying to kill himself when police were called.

Nature reserve warbles on about frequent flyer
Staff at a Devon nature reserve have been able to record a reed warbler visiting the area during what's believed to be its ninth migration between Britain and Africa, East Devon District Council says.
The code on a ring on the bird's leg, which was put on by the Axe Estuary Ringing Group, revealed it was first caught on Seaton Wetlands as an adult in 2009.
The group ring birds
for conservation monitoring purposes and have been active on the Axe Estuary
reserves for more than 10 years.
Council reserves manager James Chubb said: "It is remarkable that
this tiny little bird has made such an incredible journey not just once, but at
least nine times, and each time we can be sure she is returning to the same
small patch of reeds at Seaton Wetlands to feed and breed."

Metal price rises 'giving impetus to restart old mines'
Neil Gallacher, Business & Industry Correspondent
The price of metals is continuing to rise, giving renewed impetus to attempts to restart old mines in a handful of places across the region.
The company that's currently test-drilling for tin in east Cornwall has become one of the few firms of its type to turn a profit, although that's as a result of its mining overseas.
The price rises are historically significant. Tin prices are higher then they were through most of the 20th Century, with today's tin price about 40% higher than 1900 in real terms.
But even with these prices, it's far from easy to reopen an old mine. We've seen that at Hemerdon, near Plymouth. They've had quite bad technical teething problems and the tungsten price has been through a real wobble, but it is now moving quite steadily in the right direction.
Their investors keep funding them because they think they will make money.

Overall there's been a decline in morale, with the biggest fall among Royal Marines.
However, 74% of those military personnel questioned still said they were proud to be in their service.

"I do want to repay the club and see if we can get promoted this year, and I really think that there's an opportunity to do that with the squad we've got now."
