It seemed to happen around midnight November 28th Japan Time, police officers visit was watched by the program watcher net-users and reported on 2 channel. Those officers read up her farewell note and gave some sentiment in front of the webcam without noticing they were broadcasted, one watcher had recorded and uploaded that part on YouTube.

2 channel logs were summarized [J] on few 2 channel summary blogs and became buzzword among Japanese twitter users. No traditional media have reported on this yet at 5 a.m. Some 2 channel users wrote that she broadcasted slashing her wrist before on the same site and someone called police.

It is still unknown how she is. It is still possible that it is fake to get attention (I hope so).

There was another suicide attempt broadcast on NicoNico Nama Housou, popular movie site NicoNico Douga’s sub service for users livestream. Another girl cut her wrist a little on live [J], later she confessed that it was fake and the blood was red food colouring.
