Here’s a story to make you question your faith in humanity. Earlier this month, a woman in Taiwan killed herself while chatting with friends for 67 minutes on Facebook. And during that time, not one person called the police.
According to reports, it was 31-year-old Claire Lin’s birthday, and she was upset that her boyfriend wasn’t celebrating it with her. So Lin logged onto Facebook, and proceeded to document her suicide:
She slowly asphyxiated herself on smoke from charcoal while she was chatting with nine of her Facebook friends about what she was doing. She even uploaded pictures from her phone that show a charcoal barbecue burning near two stuffed animals and a room filled with smoke fumes.
And, while some of Lin’s friends did try to talk her out of it, no one called the police or an ambulance for her. Her last words online were, “Too late. My room is filled with fumes. I just posted another picture. Even while I’m dying, I still want FB (Facebook). Must be FB poison. Haha.” How tragic and awful.
