A teenager in France live-streamed her suicide on Periscope Tuesday, according to a new report. The woman, who was born in 1997, announced her plans to viewers before throwing herself in front of a train, the New York Times reported. The video is no longer available on Periscope, but has been uploaded to YouTube with the suicide blacked out. Emergency workers can be heard finding the victim.
At one point, the woman says, “The video I am doing right now is not made to create the buzz but rather to make people react, to open the minds, and that’s it,” according to a translation by the Times. Viewers made jokes like “We’re waiting” and “I think it’s fun.”
