A teenage girl is believed to have been found hanged just weeks after posting a heartbreaking video on YouTube detailing her battle with cyber bullies.
Amanda Todd, 15, was found dead at her home in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, Canada, on Wednesday in an apparent suicide.
Last month, the troubled teenager shared a black and white video called “My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm” revealing her years of hidden torment.
She also admitted that she had turned to drugs and alcohol and had tried to take her own life twice.
Using a series of notecards, Amanda silently tells how she was pressured into flashing her breasts to a man in an online chatroom who then circulated the photograph around the web.
The bullying forced her to move to a different city and change school but the teenager describes how her abusers continued to target her through Facebook.
She also tells how she made a “huge mistake” and “hooked up” with a boy at school, who had a girlfriend.
The schoolgirl was confronted by the boy’s girlfriend and beaten up in front of a crowd of people who left her lying in a ditch.
She reveals she was hospitalised following the ordeal after trying to commit suicide by drinking bleach.
