Beverley & Althol Whiston (as filmed by NRC in the Netherlands in 2017)
The October 2016 Exit Workshop in Sydney Australia attended by the Whistons who are seated on the left hand side towards the rear.
While neither was seriously ill (and therefore would not have qualified to use an end of life law, had such a law even existed in Australia), the Whiston’s main priority was to go together. Theirs was a joint rational suicide. As Beverley explained in an interview with Dutch newspaper NRC shortly before they died, ‘why would I want to leave the other part of me behind? It’s not possible, I can’t do that, we are one’.
