Livestreamed Suicide Raises Painful Questions in China
After fighting for a year to have her claims of sexual assault taken seriously, 19-year-old Li Yiyi was ready to give up.
On June 20, she climbed to the eighth floor of a department store in her hometown, in Northwest China’s Gansu province. She sat on the ledge, staring down at the ground or at her phone.
As police and firefighters arrived in droves, so too did onlookers. Several began filming her. Some even yelled for her to jump to her death.
