More and more suicides everyday, Japanese woman commits suicide on Korean Air Flight

May 30, 2008

I don’t want to seem too morbid, but I could write multiple blog entries every day if I just wrote about all the suicides in Japan.

This one is also a little unique because the 29 year old woman was on her way back from a vacation in Honolulu. Some people who had been sitting near her notified the flight attendant when the woman failed to return from the bathroom. When the flight attendants checked the bathroom, they found the woman unconscious, having hanged herself using her scarf. Once the plane was able to land the woman was immediately taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Something really has to be done, what’s making all these people think that life’s not worth continuing with? Adult film stars known to date popular Japanese comedians, well-known freelance announcers, people returning from Hawaii, high school kids… why is this even an option.

I was quite upset hearing the japanese girl from fukoka taken her own life on the way back to japan from honolulu on a korean flight . I really wonder why did she do that ? i was wondering if she was upset of breaking up with someone over there or was she deported upon arrival to hawaii because so many japanese girls do that in and outsin order to live there and sometimes if they do that a lot using visa waiwer program immigration can simply refuse entry and send them back , i dont wanna think that she was an overstay but i strongly suspect that she was not admited and becasue of that she was upset and took her own life , so the question for me to ask is that why people cant live in where they love to live ? why a japanese girl who loves hawaii so much wont be allowed to live there, whats the big deal ? shes gone now, she lost her life, she gave up, why cant we let pepple live where they wanna live, where they feel happy . she was just another human being and for hawaii having another human being would be no more no less crowd, its so sa ! its so sad !

Thank you for your comment. It really is a sad thing though. If she could just stay alive, I’m sure she’d find a way to go back to Hawaii or solve her problems someday. I think young people just need to know that life goes on and we have new opportunities every day. The key in life is to keep going even when something goes wrong.
