SAITAMA (TR) – A teenage girl jumped to her death from a footbridge in an apparent suicide in Kawaguchi City on Friday, reports TV Asahi (May 5).
At around 8 a.m., the girl, 14, was found collapsed and bleeding from her ears below the pedestrian overpass at an intersection, Saitama Prefectural Police said.
A bike and bag were found at the scene belonging to the student, a middle school student in her third year. She was transported to a hospital where her death was confirmed.
