Streaming Live: Online Suicide

A nineteen year old kid killed himself online. He left an online suicide note, he announced it ahead of time, and then he actually did it.

About 185 people were viewing the feed on the San Francisco-based live-streaming service. The teen had announced his pending suicide on a bodybuilding.com chat forum, which linked to the broadcast. He left an online suicide note. Viewers were seen egging him on.

While online viewers watched  a police officer prodding the Florida teen to see if he was alive, their chat comments ranged from OMG to LOL.

People are fucking sick.
