16-Year-Old Boy Kills Himself Due to Family Being “Poor”

A 16-year-old boy in Wuxi killed himself by drinking electrolyte fluid and slashing his throat as he believed his family was too poor. Xiao Jie (alias) had argued twice with his father on two occasions just prior to the tragedy, expressing his lack of hope for the future and his resentment towards their rented apartment’s small size. Later, upon returning home from buying groceries, his father discovered him foaming at the mouth with a knife wound to his neck, and so called 120, but unfortunately doctors were unable to save him. One netizen expressed his disgust of the boy’s hatred for his family being poor.

    Good riddance.

    He set an example for other Chinese. Good job.

    He didn’t accept his life and didn’t have the aptitude to change it. Poor parents (no pun intended) now have to live with this.

    All he wanted was for people to give him a little face.

    at least he killed himself instead of venting his anger and killing spree at others, bravo.

      This is a silver lining?

    Even if your situation is dire if you still have hope you have a reason for living, if no hope it really is the worst feeling.
