Death plunge

MOST MOTHERS want their children to get what they want,  but Janice Nicholls was praying  for another outcome for her Angel yesterday.

Less than half an hour after hearing of her daughter’s deadly intentions, Nicholls had to hustle  to a scene outside City Centre car park, where the 24-year-old lay almost lifeless after jumping from the very top.

Friends and family are trying to make sense of what could have led the “nice” young woman to jump.

When tragic incidents such as these occur, we ask ourselves if there were any visible signs that our loved one had been contemplating such an act, and if so, did we do anything or enough that could have prevented the situation. We are often left with a sense of guilt, along with understandable pain and grief.

Angel obviously resolved in her mind that there was no other way out of her troubling circumstances and decided it was best to end It all. Why she felt that way, we may never know.

It is a very sad day for everyone because it could have been a member of our own families. My deepest condolences extend to her family and may they find strength during this difficult period.

This story is heart-wrenching.There are no words to describe the pain of the mother who gave this young lady birth.Only God can sustain her at this time.
Without details,I must say that unless she had a psychiatric history and some kind of hallucinations, she must have been going through a really rough time no matter the type of pain. For some pains we need injections or pills and for some we need injections,pills and people,for others, just people.(the ones who love us unconditionally)Above all we need God.
My prayers go out to the grieving family.

No one know the reason that cause this woman to give up on life, sometimes we pretend to be strong in certain situations when dealing with personal matters. J

So what happened that she took her life? Are you going to have an extended article? We don't hear much about people leaping from buildings to take their own lives here in Bim! Call it gypsy, I would just like to know what caused a mother to take her life like this!

Cheese On, don't hold your breath on that one. My experience with this daily paper is that in too many instances we are offered sensational, provocative headlines, graphic photos, and the real story is left to the imagination.

Good comment, Carl Harper.
My condolences to the Nicholls family. I wish you comfort and love.
To those undergoing trials like Angel, If in our darkest hour we can find just that little grain of faith, the size of a mustard seed, then light will eventually come again.
May Angel rest in peace.

We need to learn to talk about our emotions, watch for signs that our loved ones are not doing well emotionally. I've always felt that Bajans tend not to pay much attention to the emotional side of people - my experience at least. When loved ones are acting in a desperate way, we need to be alert, and we need to intervene, even if it's to the point of being pushy. We can't always thwart the efforts of someone bent on self-estruction, but I'd rather offend someone I care about than regret not having done enough.

My condolences to this family. Love each other and take care of each other. May you find comfort in this trying time.

These are dark times and we need to get back to God. Our relationships with God have to be as strong as ever. We cannot face these trials and tribulations alone. Whatever trials come our way, we need to give them to God. We then need to have faith that the Lord will give us His PEACE. The peace that surpasses all understanding. We can not wait until all else fails. We would never be delivered.
