HÀ NỘI — An American tourist travelling around Asia has died after jumping from a road bridge in Hà Nội on Thursday morning.
Reports say around 10am, the woman jumped from a road bridge in Võ Nguyên Giáp Street near the Nội Bài International Airport.
Local residents found her naked body on the road below and rushed her to hospital where she was pronounced dead this afternoon, according to a report by VTC.
Police said her clothes and American passport were found near the spot where she jumped.
Three days ago, she posted a message on Facebook quoting the lyrics to a Beyonce song which included the line ‘trying to fix something you can’t see’.
According to her Facebook page, the victim had visited Bali before arriving in Việt Nam. It is not clear when she arrived.
An earlier post on a community group in Hà Nội had expressed concern for a woman fitting her description who had been acting strangely around Kim Mã.
The person who wrote the post said she tried in vain to help, but the woman wouldn’t accompany her to the American Embassy. — VNS
