Russian police investigate Skype suicide
Among the viewers, it seems that only one tried to stop him while the others urged him on
The apparent live-on-Skype suicide of a man in Russia is being investigated by police in Moscow, the Daily Mail reported Friday.
Sergey Kirilov, who had announced that he was going to hang himself on a social media platform, asked anyone who wanted to see the tragic scene to add him on Skype.
“We will be investigating everyone who watched this incident, especially those who urged him to carry it out who may be guilty of negligent homicide.” Leonti Zubarev, the spokesperson for the Moscow police force, said.
Among the viewers, it seems that only one tried to stop him while the others urged him on, the newspaper reported.
“Come on, are you ready yet? Go on - do it,” one spectator commented underneath while Kirilov was getting ready to hang himself.
“If a man says he’s going to do something, he needs to do it,” another viewer commented underneath.
