Asiajin.com reports that a 24-year old woman who goes by the screenname _mextli attempted suicide today by jumping off the balcony of her fourth floor apartment — all in plain view of her live videostream. The attempt was supposedly broadcast on Stickam Japan, although _mextli’s profile appears to have been removed. The incident, though, was widely discussed on 2channel.
In the past, people have used livecasts to fake suicide attempts for attention — not just in Japan. No news yet as to whether _mextli’s rumored suicide attempt was real or not.
