Student dies of drowning during live broadcast in Canada

A 24-year-old student recorded his own death on video during a live broadcast on Facebook in a swimming pool in Canada.

The case was recorded on Thursday (18), when Helen Nyabuto, a Kenyan studying nursing in the US, got into the pool to swim.

Around 2 p.m., he started the broadcast, talking to his followers for a few seconds and leaving pictures to swim in deeper.

According to Canadian website CBC, in a video posted on Hellen’s Facebook, the woman can be heard screaming for help seconds after disappearing from the frame. He stopped talking and the broadcast continued until 5pm, when another hotel guest found the woman’s body in the pool and ended the video.

According to Ontario Police, the incident was recorded shortly before 5:45 p.m., more than half an hour after guests discovered the student’s body in the swimming pool.

Rescue procedures were applied to the woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

To bring the girl’s body back to Kenya, Helen’s relatives set up a virtual fundraiser. In three days, they raised 54,000 Canadian dollars (equivalent to R$212,000), enough to transport his body, which was buried over the weekend.

According to Ontario police, procedures are being taken so that the video depicting the student’s death, which was widely publicized, is removed from social media out of respect for the young woman’s family.
