Facebook Employee Commits Suicide At Company’s HQ

September 26, 2019 | News | No Comments

According to a report from CNET, a Facebook employee named Qin Chen jumped off from the fourth floor of the company’s headquarters in Menlo Park, California to end his life. The 38-year-old man, who was a resident of San Mateo, is currently thought to have committed suicide with no foul play involved.

When the district police and the Menlo Park Fire Protection arrived at the scene he was unresponsive, so they tried to revive him but failed. Thus, he was announced dead at the scene.

The police said that the investigation was done ethically. A spokesperson from Facebook said in a statement that, “We’re cooperating with police in their investigation and providing support to employees,” and “While the family is being notified, we have no information to share.”

However, a YouTuber known as Shyu felt there was something fishy about the case, especially since he used to work as a Facebook employee himself. He then uploaded a video to shed light on Facebook’s company culture and to perhaps help give Chen’s family and friends some closure on what might have motivated him to take his life.

He had also collected some intel from Facebook Blind, which is an internal anonymous chat app, and found out that many of the other Facebook employees suspected that Facebook was trying to cover up the suicide as just another “death at workplace”.

Shyu posted the video on Monday and explained details of Chen’s suicide that he had collected from the Blind app. However, Shyu still stresses that these are just speculations and have not been verified.

According to Shyu, based on the posts in the Blind app:

  1. Chen used to work for Facebook’s advertising group, which can also be described as “a very high-stress group.”
  2. Chen’s performance rating dropped, and the company moved him to the PIP or Performance Improvement Plan – or according to the YouTuber, “the path to you getting fired”For an employee, being put under this program will cause great embarrassment.
  3. Chen tried to make things better by requesting to be transferred to a different team before he was put in PIP.
  4. He allegedly found another team but the manager held back his transfer by convincing him to stay on his team till the end of the quarter and promised to give him a good performance rating.
  5. After the quarter ended, he received a bad rating by his manager that stopped him from moving to a different team.
  6. Chen had enough when they assigned him to do a Severe Site Event (SEV) review. He reportedly tried to delay the process but was blocked by an internal script.
  7. One hour before the review, he allegedly committed suicide.

All of these assumptions were collected by Shyu from the Blind app but the video, and he also showed a poll where 61.8% of the employees admitted that they feel stressed out.

“Ketika itu saya berada di tingkat atas untuk menjalankan rutin bulanan menyelenggara sistem air panas.

“Saya ada berlegar-legar di kawasan lapang tingkat atas itu menjawab panggilan telefon.

“Bagaimanapun, kira-kira 15 minit kemudian pengurus hotel datang kepada saya dan bertanya sama ada saya dalam keadaan baik,” katanya.

Asyraf berkata, dia hairan apabila ditanya dengan soalan itu.

“Pengurus memberitahu ada menerima laporan bahawa ada individu yang cuba membunuh diri dan mereka menyangka saya adalah orangnya.

A 16-year-old in Kuching, Sarawak committed suicide after netizens voted for her to end her life via an Instagram (IG) poll.

According to Astro Awani, the teenager jumped from the third floor of a shoplot in Bandar Baru Batu Kawa, last night (13th May). Chief policeman of the Padawan district, Superintendent Aidil Bolhassan, was quoted as saying,

“About 69 per cent of her IG followers supported her decision (to end her life) via the poll, which was created around 3pm yesterday.”

FYI, she had created an IG poll which read: “Really Important, Help Me Choose D(Die)/ L (Life)”, and allowed the netizens to decide her fate.

Besides that, she also posted a Facebook status indicating that she was tired of life. Her Facebook post, which was all in caps read,

“WANNA QUIT (MY) F*CKING LIFE, I’M TIRED.”

After the authorities checked the victim’s mobile phone, they figured out that the girl had written a heartfelt WeChat status to her friends in Chinese before committing suicide.

Aidil explained that the girl might have felt stressed after her step-dad married a Vietnamese woman in Singapore. Apparently, both of them (the step-father and his wife) rarely come back home.

The victim’s body was found by a man at around 8pm, and he immediately reported the incident to the Batu Kawa police station. Following that, the victim’s brother and Indonesian mother also stumbled upon her corpse when they were on their way home after dinner.

Additionally, Aidil shared that the victim’s corpse was brought to the Forensic Department of Sarawak’s General Hospital for an autopsy. The authorities then concluded that there was no criminal motive detected and the case was classified as sudden death. 

On that note, if you think you’re going through a rough time and need some help, you can always reach out to Befrienders KL at 603-79568145, or you can also visit their website for more information.

The Star reported that a 41-year-old man just committed suicide inside a car at the Miri Hospital compound. The tragic incident took place on 23 April 2019 at around 10pm.

It was reported that the man took his own life by using “exhaust fumes from his own car to gas himself to death”. Miri police chief Asst Comm Lim Meng Seah said,

“The man took (a) video of himself inside the car as he was about to commit suicide and sent it to his wife. The police rushed to the scene after being alerted. It was the son who found the man inside the car.”

The police found that the car was locked from the inside. Therefore, they had to open the door using force. According to Asst Comm Lim, after the police’s investigation, they concluded that it was a suicide case as they found no foul play in the case.

At the time of writing, the police revealed that the body will still be sent for a post-mortem, so we should keep our eyes peeled for further information on this matter.

Boy Commits Suicide After Dad Shuts Down PC!

April 2, 2019 | Viral | No Comments

According to a report by Apple Daily, tragedy struck a family in Taiwan when after a bitter argument, a young boy jumped to his death on his 15th birthday on March 23.

The boy, named Cheng, had an argument with his father who was upset that his son was playing the online game League of Legends rather than studying for his upcoming exam on March 26th. The father started scolding the son around 9.30pm, while the son was in the middle of the game. He then suddenly switched off the computer before leaving the room, and this obviously made the boy very upset.

After a while, Cheng lept off the building from a third storey window, suffering severe head trauma on impact. The boy was discovered only later at around 10.30pm when his grandfather was returning from a trip and found him sprawled on the floor in a pool of blood and bleeding profusely from his head.

The authorities were immediately called and the boy was quickly rushed to the hospital but it was too late. Cheng was tragically declared dead at around 3am. 

Cheng was reportedly a cheerful, caring, and optimistic young boy. He was a star student who performed well in school and was well liked by his classmates. He was living with his father and sister after his parents’ divorce three years ago.

Cheng had been under heavy pressure due to his looming high school entrance exams and begun spending more time playing video games for stress relief. He had also, as is the norm for that age, become more emotional and rebellious.

Earlier that day, he had just gone out for a birthday lunch with his friends, and his family ordered pizza to celebrate that evening.

His teachers and classmates went to the funeral home the next day to bid Cheng farewell, with his principal bringing Cheng’s diploma.

Authorities have found a suicide note from Cheng saying that he had suicidal thoughts and he wanted to be a carefree bird and fly away freely.

Cheng also left another suicide note to his best friend Wu, who has been his classmate for 9 years. He included some of his remaining pocket money. “Please give this money to Wu to repay him for his friendship these past 9 years. Thank you for spending so much time with me these 9 years, thank you so much,” the note said.

Student Failed An Exam And Commit Suicide

March 12, 2019 | Info, News | No Comments

Life deals a fair share of blows to all of us, but sometimes, it may be too much to take, leading some of us to resort to drastic measures.

A 22-year-old Swedish girl studying in Penang met an all too early end after she jumped to her death from a condominium.

Eyewitnesses, who were at the pool of the Sri York condominium the night the tragedy happened told police they had first seen the victim, Mrida Kaul, dancing without clothes on in her room while blasting sad songs.

Afterward, she took a bag of rubbish and threw it out from the fourth-floor unit, at 8:45pm on March 9, Saturday, reports Oriental Daily.

Not long after that, she leaped from her house and died on the spot. A security guard there spotted her body and placed an emergency call to the police.

Upon their arrival, Police also broke into the victim’s room with help from the fire and rescue department and found her belongings scattered all over the floor.

A good friend of Kaul’s told police that Kaul’s boyfriend had cheated on her, and the latter had found someone new, which left her distraught.

She also revealed that there had been a disagreement between Kaul and her housemate – who was in Subang at the time – and she had felt more depressed than ever after failing her exams.

She must have felt so helpless during those dark days! Upon further investigation, northeast district police chief Asst. Commissioner Che Zaimani Che Awang told the press that no injuries apart from the ones inflicted by the fall had been found, and that the case had been classified as sudden death, since there was no evidence of foul play.

Coconuts has reported that a 21-year-old university student in Indonesia plunged to his death from the roof of a mall and the people who were there during the incident didn’t even think to help the poor guy. Instead, they were filming the incident and urging the student to jump down. What even… The local police mentioned that the young man was believed to have been driven to suicide due to heartbreak. According to the report, several videos have circulated all over the internet in which the crowd can be heard chanting, “Jump! Jump!” at the man while laughing loudly. However, the scene quickly took a dark turn when the young man eventually jumped down.

An eye-witness, Heni was quoted as saying, “I even saw up there [on the rooftop] a man who was wearing black. I thought he was negotiating with the victim so he wouldn’t commit suicide, but he was actually among those who took pictures.” Heni said that many people who were there during the incident were preoccupied with their phones because they were taking pictures instead of trying to coax the man down from the ledge.

Even after the student jumped to his death, netizens posted many “callous and cynical messages” as they accused him of staging his suicide just for attention. A man is dead and this is no joke! On the side note, did you know that neglecting a person in danger is a crime in Indonesia? Yep, if one gets convicted of the abovementioned offence, they can be jailed for up to three months. Nevertheless, no one has come forth and reported this case yet. Hopefully, someone will report it soon.  Having said that, if we ever find ourselves in similar situations, please do make it a point to call the authorities so that they can help prevent the person from committing a mistake. This is because they are trained to handle these kinds of situations.
