On Monday, a 15-year-old from Staten Island, who relatives say was bullied at school, jumped in front of a bus and later died of her injuries, according to The Huffington Post.
Amanda Diane Cummings was carrying a suicide note at the time of the crash in Staten Island.
From Huff Po:
Cummings was a sophomore at New Dorp High School and according to the girl's uncle, Keith Cummings, she had been bullied by peers.
The relative spoke to the Staten Island Advance on the alleged bullying and said Amanda was tormented after bullies stole her possessions including her jacket, phone, and shoes.
He said they were even posting cruel, inappropriate comments on Amanda's Facebook wall while in the hospital after being struck by the bus.
