    Daniel von Bargen -- who played Mr. Kruger in "Seinfeld" -- is clinging to life in an Ohio hospital after shooting himself in the head Monday morning in a failed suicide attempt ... and TMZ has the horrifying 911 tape in which he calls for help.

    Daniel tells the 911 operator, "I've shot myself in the head ... and I need help."

    The operator asks if it was an accident -- Daniel replies, "I was supposed to go to the hospital and I didn't want to." Daniel says he's diabetic, explaining, "They were supposed to amputate at least a few toes."

    The operator asks where the gunshot wound is -- Daniel replies, "I shot in my temple."

    Law enforcement officials confirm they were dispatched to von Bargen's Cincinnati apartment complex a short time later -- and when they arrived, you can hear them on the 911 tape ... yelling at Daniel to keep his hands where they could see them.

    Von Bargen -- who also played Chief Grady in "Super Troopers" -- was transported to a nearby hospital where he is currently in critical condition.

    During the call, Daniel goes into even more graphic detail about his condition. Listen at your own discretion.
    The 911 call is in the link. He played Mr. Kruger on Seinfeld and Commandant Spangler in Malcolm in the Middle.

    He failed to shoot himself in the head. I can't think of anything more painful, hope he survives.

    Jesus, I loved him as Commandant Spangler in Malcolm and in Universal Soldier 2, hope he recovers and gets help.

    According to his 911 call he shot himself with a .38, the man is lucky to be alive.

    You have to be very precise if you actually want to commit quick suicide with a gun to the head.

    Sounds even scarier when the police are treating you like you are armed and dangerous whilst you're bleeding to death.

    Well, he was armed, and could be potentially dangerous. Once they knew he just fucked up suicide and was no threat to them they helped him out.

    That's actually the least painful thing I can think of, as the brain contains no pain receptors. Many people have been shot in the head, stabbed in the head and not realized it for days or even weeks.

    True but I'm sure everything before the brain would feel pain.

    I took a nail through the foot and it hurt a lot and I bled all over the place

    though I guess the foot is more sensetive than the wrist so idk

    Such a talented actor. I grew up with both Seinfield and Malcom and some other movies and shows like a lot of people did, I really didn't expect this.

    There's a case of a sergeant in Iraq getting stabbed in the back of the head with a butcher knife and not noticing for a good fifteen minutes. I'll see if I can find it.

    There's still myriads of nociceptors in the surrounding non-cerebral tissue that will make the pain very real.

    to be honest I hope he doesn't survive, I think it'd be quite bad to survive attempted killing yourself

    Edited:

    Also it sounds like he shot himself through the eyes from the temple, which is quite common

    Likely blinded himself for life, firing through the temple and both eyes, he said he couldn't open his eyes anymore. Very sad thing to hear.

    He said he could open his left on a bit but he probably got blood in it or something, I dunno, I hope he makes a good recovery, or dies because that was his aim

    He had his wits about him during the call. That's probably a good sign for his recovery.
