ALARM­ING

NewsChina - - CONTENTS -

A sixth-grader in Jiangxi Prov­ince at­tempted to com­mit sui­cide by jump­ing from a 15-story build­ing be­fore she fell onto an airbag po­si­tioned by po­lice of­fi­cers. Ac­cord­ing to the girl's aunt, the sui­cide at­tempt was pos­si­bly caused by the girl feel­ing pres­sured be­cause she failed to fin­ish her win­ter va­ca­tion home­work be­fore the new se­mes­ter started. Ne­ti­zens felt it be­yond un­der­stand­ing that a pupil would so eas­ily give up her life for such a small mat­ter. Many have blamed the girl's par­ents for nei­ther help­ing their daugh­ter, who is 12 years old, to bet­ter man­age her time nor take care of her psy­cho­log­i­cal health.
