It seems like every time we turn around, we discover a young person who felt they had no other options available to them, decides to take their own life.

Omotayo Adeoye, a 17-year-old student in the New York neighborhood of the Bronx couldn’t handle the embarrassment she felt after she was caught cheating on a test. Feeling ashamed after her teacher, who caught her looking at a cellphone during the test, called her apology insincere in front of her classmates, she scribbled a desperate note on the test, asked to use the restroom, and jumped to her death in the Hudson River, sources told The Post.

Adeoye was a bright student at a City College affiliate HS for Math, Science and Engineering in Harlem, where, on the day of her suicide, she had been taking a German test.

A classmate said that teacher Eva Malikova  “was walking around the room and saw [Adeoye] on her phone. She snatched it away from her and started screaming at her, ‘Oh, you shouldn’t be cheating! You guys shouldn’t be cheating! You guys are lying to yourselves!’ ”
