Sad: Woman Commits Suicide While Chatting On Facebook

Authorities in Taiwan have revealed details on the final moments of a woman named Claire Lin, who killed herself earlier this month while chatting on Facebook with nine of her friends.
Lin had just turned 31, and she was apparently unhappy because she felt ignored by her boyfriend for not coming home to celebrate her birthday with her. Lin slowly asphyxiated herself on smoke from charcoal, all the while she was chatting with nine of her Facebook friends about what she was doing. She even uploaded pictures from her phone which showed the charcoal burning near two stuffed animals and a room filled with smoke fumes.
According to the AP, one of the friends she was chatting with begged her to open the window. But she replied, "The fumes are suffocating. They fill my eyes with tears. Don't write me anymore." The ordeal apparently on for 67 minutes, and her other chat buddies even tried to stop her and track her down too. But nobody called the police. Lin's final words on Facebook:
"Too late. My room is filled with fumes. I just posted another picture. Even while I'm dying, I still want FB (Facebook). Must be FB poison. Haha."
God, that's pretty depressing. It's hard to think of a more tragic way to sign off from the world.
