Florida Teen Commits Suicide Live on Web Cam

A 19-year-old Florida man committed suicide live on a Web cam, encouraged by those who were watching, according to reports.

Abraham K Biggs, of Broward County, took an overdose of pills while broadcasting himself on Justin.tv, a live video streaming Web site.

Biggs used the Web site to stream footage from his bedroom and told users he would be committing suicide and invited them to watch live.

He posted a suicide note, where he said he had hurt other people and hated himself for being a failure.

The teen then took several pills before lying on the bed with his back to the camera.

Forum members reportedly continued to insult him, believing his actions were staged. Members eventually managed to contact the local police who broke down the door, found Biggs' body and turned off the camera.

Biggs’s death was reportedly confirmed by the Broward County medical examiner.
