New York Police Say They’re Searching For A Nigerian-American High School Student Who Attempted Suicide

Omotayo Adeoye is missing at this hour. New York Police say the High School of Mathematics and Science student had attempted suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge Thursday afternoon.




The attempted suicide, say police, occurred Thursday Afternoon at about 3:30 pm New York time.  Eyewitnesses told police that Adeoye was seen jumping from the bridge, and hitting the Hudson River shortly thereafter.

She was still alive from the long jump into the murky waters below, surfacing shortly afterwards.

Astonishingly, Adeoye had survived and, SaharaReporters was told, she was seen swimming towards the New York bank of the Hudson. Other witnesses told police that she was shortly swept away by the strong currents of the river.

Police officials told SaharaReporters that Adeoye is “still considered missing” at the time of this report.  Their investigation in this case is ongoing.

Officials at the High School of Math and Science, where the gifted student attended, and also at the Brooklyn-based New York High School Superintendent’s office, would neither confirm or deny the incident to a SaharaReporters correspondent.

Our telephone calls to both offices were not returned.
