He was rushed to a hospital where doctors tried to save his life but he could not recover.
After his death, videos and screenshots went viral. In some places, spectators say, ‘Drink this (pesticide) quickly’, ‘while others called police and aid workers for help.
A close friend of Lu Xiao said that she did not want to commit suicide, but only wanted the attention of her old lover, who had turned away some time ago, by putting pesticides in the video with her. However, the woman’s family has decided to prosecute all those present in the live stream, at whose instigation the woman drank poison and died.
A lawyer has also been contacted in this regard in which a case of intentional suicide incitement has been filed against the livestream messages. On the other hand, the girl’s parents have said that the Chinese online platform has also failed to prevent suicides.
