    Not sure but if you read the New Paper report it says he was carrying his school bag with exercise book, coins and a picture of his family inside in the middle of the night.

    Yes, you should wait.

    In these suicide cases the parents tied themselves to their kids with red string.

    Photography is one pursuit that keeps a person from thinking of jumping out of tall building.

    No photographer has ever committed suicide here although there may be a few jailed for getting their hands out of control.

    I think if you keep taking pictures of happy people (e.g. like wedding or XMM photographers) you should be alright. But if you start to deal with sad issues (e.g. police suicide photographer) then you might get affected too.

    Sorry... I prefer scientific based reasoning than supernatural based answer.....Dress in Red, Red strings, Yellow yarn or Red underwear for luck, while interesting to read and gossip about.... usually meant nothing ti the case in the end...

    Again... I'll wait for the Police inquiry....

    Of course it does not matter whether you believe as they not doing this for you, they are doing it for themselves.

    You should sit back relax and wait.

    I am surprised that as much as 22% of kids here harboured thoughts of suicide.
    In a study of over 600 children aged between 6-12 in Singapore, researches found that 22% indicated that they wanted to kill themselves or had harboured thoughts of killing themselves!

    blame it on unrealistic expectations and no proper upbringing of a child.

    instead of letting the child enjoy their childhood, they're forcing them to become mini-businessmen or star achievers.

    this builds up stress easily when they find that they cannot achieve what they used to as a child once they're in institutes of higher education and in the workforce
