A 17-year-old female high school student of Nigerian descent attending a U.S high school has committed suicide.
The student, Omotayo Adeoye was humiliated in front of her classmates for cheating on a test. Sadly she jumped to her death in the Hudson River last Thursday, The New York Post reports.
She reportedly wrote a suicide note right on her German-language exam that read, “I just want to go away forever on the bottom of the river.”
Adeoye subsequently asked to use the bathroom but never returned. She left school and walked to the edge of the Hudson River and jumped in and drowned herself.
Before her death, Adeoye was a student of Harlem High School for Math, Science and Engineering.
