Daisy Ho student suicide: A Cardiff University student reaches out to a friend on Facebook telling them they don’t want to live anymore.
An inquest has heard how Daisy Ho, a 20 year old UK student died just hours after sending a message to a friend that she didn’t want to live anymore.
In a note, the student studying at Cardiff University wrote, ‘I don’t want to live, I don’t want to be breathing.’
Adding: ‘It’s five minutes to midnight, if I don’t check with you in five hours assume I’m gone. Thank you for everything.’
Tragically the girl’s body would be found in her student flat hours after sending the goodbye note to her pal – who was 6,000 miles away in California at the time.
An inquest heard the 20-year-old had battled with mental illness for years and had felt rejected by society and a failure in life.
In her message before her death, she wrote: ‘It’s five minutes to midnight, if I don’t check with you in five hours assume I’m gone.
‘Thank you for everything.’
In another message shortly afterwards she told him: ‘I don’t want to live, I don’t want to be breathing, so much pain.’
According to the mirror, Daisy Ho’s body was found hours later in her student flat.
Her final messages were found on her laptop by police who went to her bedroom in a student block in Maindee, Cardiff, in November.
The inquest heard that Daisy, who was in her second year as an education and sociology student after moving from Hong Kong, suffered from depression for years.
Fellow student Gregory Lloyd told the Cardiff inquest: ‘She said she felt rejected by society and was a failure in life.’
South Wales Central coroner Philip Spinney recorded a conclusion of suicide.
He said: ‘This is a very sad case. Messages on the internet indicated her intention to take her own life.
‘She was assessed in hospital and was offered student support services but declined them.’
Not necessarily understood is why the girl refused overtures for help.
