An Indian teenager who was removed from a lake after trying to take his own life made a second suicide attempt as part of the “Blue Whale” online game.
Earlier this week, the 17-year-old girl was removed from a lake after jumping from a cliff in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, and told the police that she had been warned that her mother would be dead, she did not kill herself.
In a desperate attempt to complete the “game”, the teenager was overdosed on the sleeping pills on Tuesday, but was still happily saved in time.
It is believed that the tragic adolescent made the second attempt in his own life in the illusion that it would save his mother.
He would have swallowed a lot of sleeping pills, but is now recovering in an intensive care unit.
The “game” of the lethal blue whale includes 50 tasks over so many days, aimed at “creating psychologically traumatic situations”, ending in suicide.
Blue Whale has been linked to more than 100 deaths of young adolescents worldwide since her birth in Russia in 2015.
Participants join a “group” where the tasks are defined by an “administrator” group and can range from watching horror movies to bizarre hours and eventually progressing to self-harm.
As in the case of Jodhpur, aged 17, many are informed that their relatives will be injured if they do not perform the tasks. On the last day, the participants were told to commit suicide.
The daughter’s parents reported having missed her Monday after she had not returned from a shopping trip.
A local park guard saw her near a lake around midnight Monday.
“She was crying, I realized I was going to jump into the lake,” Om Prakash told NDTV.
“I ran after her and tried to stop her. I started talking to her and asked her what the problem was, she said” my mother is going to die. ”
“She said her game had ended and if she did not finish her task, her mother would die.”
When the teenager jumped, the police arrived at the scene and could get out of the water.
The deaths of children and youth around the world have been linked to the sinister game of the blue whale, including three young men in the United States, five in India and a dozen in Brazil.
In Russia, about 20 suicides have been officially linked to the game, but politicians and the media have suggested that the figure reaches hundreds.
The Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta said that of 130 suicides among children in the country between November 2015 and April 2016, almost all were “members of one group or another on the Internet”.
In July, the 22-year-old man accused of inventing the game was jailed for three years and four months in July.
Philipp Budeikin, also known as Philipp Fox, had been linked to 16 blue whale suicides in different regions of Russia and had been reported as the dominant brain of social media mania.
However, his belief was related only to two of the more than 17 cases in which he confessed to being involved.
During the investigation, Budeikin called the victims of the game “biological waste” and told the police that they were “happy to die” and that he “cleans the society,” the researchers said.
