Bullied Teen Commits Suicide

Bullied Teen Jumps in Front of Moving Train

Nothing is a more urgent reminder of the dangers of teasing in the age of social media than the story of a kid who takes her own life. Earlier this week, a 15-year-old New York teen named Felicia Garcia committed suicide by leaping in front of a moving train. The Staten Island freshman made her tragic jump while her classmates watched, allegedly because she "dwelled on rumors" from bullies, The Huffington Post reports.

Friends said they never suspected she would take her own life as they waited for the train after school, but Garcia's Twitter account revealed otherwise. Shortly before her suicide, she wrote on Twitter: "I can't, I'm done, I give up."
