There's a story O'Connor (the guy what built the pipeline to Kalgoorlie) turned on the tap at Kal only to discover there was no water. He was shattered, so he shot himself and then moments later the water came out.

It sounds dramatic, but it looks like the reality is somewhat more mundane. Well, as mundane as suicide can be.
