Hounded frequently by the debt collectors, Jessy Paola Moreno Cruz, 32, was a single mother who recently threw herself off a bridge with her son.
This incident took place La Variante Bridge in Tolima. The 32-year-old was standing on the edge of the 33 feet high bridge, ready to leap.
Her son, May Ceballos, 10 was holding the sides of the bridge, requesting his mother to drop the idea. Little to the kid’s avail, his mother was determined to kill both of them.
The spectators and the emergency responders pleaded with all they had to stop this Colombian woman to not jump into the water. However, May Ceballos became a victim and was killed in a murder-suicide in Colombia.
Although the spectators recorded a video of everyone requesting the woman not to jump, it is too depressing to publish on any platform.
Emergency responders, such as firemen and community members can be seen falling on their knees and crying after having witnessed such a horrendous suicide.
Jessy Paola Moreno Cruz was a single mother who lived in Ibagué, Tolima. She was under a lot of pressure of paying back her debts and was recently evicted from her house.
Cruz’s social media activity suggests that she used to post happy pictures of herself with her son of happier times. One caption of her photo read ‘Feeling Fantastic,’ which is indeed not the mood one is in when they are having suicidal thoughts.
Certainly, one cannot judge what’s going on in a person’s mind through their social media activity. Well, while the police are still investigating the case further, it is clear that suicide is never a decision which does any good to society.
No matter how often we overlook it, helping people out when they are feeling depressed is our moral obligation. Depression is one issue which has increased with the quickening pace of life.
It is not something which will get cured with time in isolation. Encouraging dialog with a friend who seems low is one act which can save them from having suicidal thoughts.
If you know a friend who has been feeling low lately, you should talk to her/him out of trouble. This is the least you can do for society.
