Suicide numbers in Samoa increased by two last week after two girls, 19-year-old and 23-year-old, took their own lives.
The suicide deaths were confirmed by Acting Police Commissioner, Fauono Talalelei Tapu.
The first female was found by her sister in the shower of their home at Malie. She was immediately taken to the Tupua Tamasese Meaole Hospital.
“But she passed away on Friday evening.”
Fauono said the deceased female became angry at her mother for telling her to do the washing. She was a student at Wesley College.
