Facebook Kuala Lumpur, Feb 09 (ANI): A troubled teenager in China has died after falling from the second floor of her school - just days after posting in her Facebook wall about willing to end her life.

In the 9.15am tragedy, Sally Lee Qian Chun, a Form 5 student, abruptly walked out during the Chemistry lesson in the laboratory on the first floor and went to her classroom a floor above, reports the Star Online.

Witnesses in SMK Seri Kota in Ayer Leleh were shocked to see the 17-years-old sitting precariously on the corridor ledge facing her empty classroom before she fell backwards. She suffered fatal head injuries.

Since Jan 17, she had posted several disturbing comments on her wall, even saying this would be her last Chinese New Year.

Her posting became more troubled last Friday when she wrote that she had planned to take her own life last month.

On Sunday night, at around 11.07pm, Lee lamented on her Facebook of a failed relationship and broken promises while reiterating her desire to take her own life.

Her remarks drew some taunts and dares from her online friends. Some commentators even asked her to go ahead with what she wanted to do.

In her last posting at 3.45pm on Monday, Lee reminded her friends to keep their promises of buying her a teddy bear and coffin. She also told them not to miss her when she was gone and to take care of themselves. (ANI)
