Don’t bet on it, unless it was an accident.

Don’t bet on it, unless it was an accident.

More like dont bet on it if it WAS an accident. If it wasn't expect a follow up.

Was it an accident or another teenage suicide?

Another 15 year old "fell." Third year of junior high is far too stressful for many 15 year old children to handle.

She accidentally climbed up onto the wall and either accidentally fell or jumped.

2nd floor is also a little misleading. The drop is at least 9-12 meters.

If you look at images online, you can see that the walkway has a high wall, which means she would have had to climb it.

Don't pressure your kids to be perfect. Talk to them and give them emotional confidence and a feeling of being loved. Some things are more important than good grades...most things are. Rest in Peace, Young Lady
