A 16-year-old girl jumped to her death from a fifth-floor parking garage at a Connecticut mall — just moments after posting a video of herself on Snapchat, cops and friends said.

The teen, who was identified by her parents as Hailey Nailor, leaped from the parking deck at the Danbury Fair Mall on Saturday afternoon, just moments after she made the chilling social media post, the Connecticut Post reports.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Before she did, she recorded herself contemplating if she should go through with it,” a friend, Luis Lopez, 18, told the newspaper. “She sadly did go through with it.”

Danbury police Lt. Mark Williams confirmed to The Post that Nailor fell to her death from the mall’s parking garage and that an investigation was ongoing into the circumstances leading up to it, but said there’s no evidence to suggest that “she was prodded to jump” by anyone prior to her death.

However, some social media users seemed to blame her suicide on bullying, and blamed online tormenters for continuing the abuse after her death.

    It’s hard to do, but one of the best things a bullied person can do is severely limit their contact and exposure to social media. If they’re not online to bully, most aggressors lose interest. We have a whole generation of kids who aren’t really living beyond cyberspace, which is deeply unhealthy.

    I was horribly bullied as a child, so I know how it feels. But by the time I was 12, I was cultivating a completely positive social life at our local Y. It became my refuge, and it was where I gained social skills. There are plenty of positive civic organizations out there and tons of great social causes to embrace. These activities can wean kids away from social media or in the least, minimize the nasty effects of cyberbullying.
