NY Police searching for Nigerian high school student who attempted suicide

Nigerian-American student Omotayo Adeoye (pictured above) went missing after attempting to commit suicide. Omotayo, a student of High School of Mathematics and Science, had attempted suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge Thursday afternoon May 29th around 3.30pm.

According to Sahara Reporters, New York Police say they were told by eye-witnesses that Omotayo jumped from the bridge and hit the Hudson River but astonishingly survived the jump as she was seen surfacing from the river shortly after jumping and then swimming towards the New York bank of the Hudson river. She hasn't been seen since then.

Police officials told SR that Adeoye is “still considered missing” and that their investigation in this case is ongoing.

    You are right but sometimes people have no control over this thing. They are not crazy , actually we are not crazy , we are just victims of depression and majority of us face it when we have flash backs about drastic trauma or it just comes out of no where . Most of you are lucky and stay thankful cause people battle lots of illnesses in this beautiful world.

    My mama say I be Nigerian, This is what happens when mothers deny their children breast milk, they can never be meek. shoot and kill fellow human at will,take their own life at little provocation, engage in all sorts of immoral activities, No wonder a 13 years will say he/she is gay and when bullied on the internet he/she will take his/her own life. Tell me is a 13 years old enough to be in relationship talk less of choosing is sexuality? Imagine a true Nigerian child been bullied on the internet he or she will be wondering what the idiot thinks he/she is doing. I bet you that child will be the one to even bully the intruder. Train as child in the way he will grow and when he grow he will not depart from it.

    I just read on Daily Mail UK that she was caught peeping on her phone during a test and left for the bathroom after being yelled at and never returned. That is honestly sad. That is no reason for her to want to commit suicide. Living in this oyinbo world sometimes makes us forget the more important things in life.

    Even if her family found out, are they going to disown her? Probably not. She might be grounded or something but that's probably the most punishment she will get and probably repeating the class.

    I hope there is some closure to her family which ever way this turns out.
