Girlfriend Accidentally Kills Herself While Trying To Stop BF’s Suicide: “If You Are Going To Do It, So Am I”

A woman from England has died in what appears to be an attempt to stop her boyfriend’s suicide. Corinne Hayes, 23 was upset that her boyfriend Brian Marshall, 33, appeared to be close to killing himself.

However, he reportedly didn’t see the text in time. By the time he did, it was too late. Tragically, she was pronounced dead at Marshall’s apartment over the weekend.

“She was the kindest person I ever knew and she meant the world to me,” said her husband, Kevin Moore, to porn trade magazine Adult Video News (AVN). “Please leave this as a private family matter in this difficult time.”

Self Harm And Suicide Attempts Rise For Girls: Are Smart Phones And Cyber Bullying To Blame?

Young women are self-harming more, according to new data. As The Washington Post shares, emergency room visits for girls 10 to 14 has risen since 2008. It is not clear what is causing the self-harm rates to go up but some experts point to smartphones and cyber bullying as the culprits.

Most of the girls and women who were admitted to emergency rooms came for ingesting pills or poisons. Some were treated for injuring themselves with sharp objects, such as cutting. According to the new data, the number of girls ages 10 to 24 admitted to emergency rooms for nonfatal self-inflicted injuries grew by 8.4 percent annually from 2009 to 2015.

Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University, points to the importance of smartphones in the lives of this generation compared to those of the past. Teens in every generation have experienced mental-health problems, she said.

17-Year-Old Commits Suicide During School Fire Drill After Posting Goodbye Message

A high school student student fatally shot himself during a school fire drill. As WKMG reports, 17-year-old senior Seth Sutherland of Lake Minneola High School posted messages on social media and sent thoughts to loved ones before killing himself on Tuesday.

Authorities are treating the death as a “planned event.”

Lake County sheriff’s spokesman John Harrell shared, “We have reasons to believe that this was a planned event. [The courtyard near the bus loop] is out in the open, but it was not a very populated and crowded area at that time. It seems like the majority of the student body was on the other side of the building.”

Harrell said he doesn’t believe any students witnessed or heard the shooting. Sixteen-year-old Isaiah Vargas, however, said that he saw what happened through a window. 

“The body was just lifeless. Teachers were running and everything, saw it through the window. Just terrible,” Vargas said.
