The incident occurred at the Oghara River in Delta State, Nigeria. The young lady, who is said to be a student of the Delta State Polytechnic, attempted to take her own life by jumping into the river.
Fortunately, the prompt response of commuters and local divers led to her successful rescue. A video of the incident has been circulating on social media and has sparked a conversation about the importance of mental health and the need for support for those who may be struggling.
It is not clear what led the student to attempt suicide, but it is a tragic reminder that mental health issues should not be taken lightly. It is crucial for individuals, family and the society as a whole to be more sensitive to the signs and symptoms of mental health issues and to provide support and help to those in need.
It is important to remember that suicide is preventable and that help is available. If you or someone you know is experiencing mental health issues, please reach out for support.
