A DISTURBING VIDEO has gone viral - and it shows that an 18-year-old girl livestreamed her suicide - as she jumped off the Rama 8 bridge and into the Chao Phraya river in Thailand.
The woman took a taxi to the bridge - then asked her taxi driver to LIVESTREAM the suicide - and he DID IT. Some local reports suggest that the taxi may have been an Uber - or another ride-sharing taxi.
The video stream went viral in the social world with many viewers criticizing the driver for not doing anything to stop her from suicide.
The taxi driver Pattharadanai Noomarinart told police that the girl was crying, drinking and was very upset while complaining about her boyfriend before telling him to take her to the bridge.
The girl, Ms. Nittaya Sawatdiwan, paid him extra money to stay with her and shoot the clip. He was questioned by the police but not charged.
He said he did not stop the girl from jumping into the river because he did not know she would kill herself.
