A Brooklyn woman jumped to her death in Hudson Yards on Tuesday but not before a posthumous Instagram message to be posted days after her suicide.
24-year-old Yocheved Gourarie bought a ticket to the Vessel in Hudson Yards, got to the highest level, climbed on the railing, and jumped to her death, authorities said.
When police and EMS arrived at the scene, they declared her dead at the scene.
“If you’re reading this, I’m gone,” Gourarie wrote on her tragic suicide note. “Either that or somehow incapacitated in the hospital so I can’t delete this scheduled post. I really hope I’m not though.”
“I don’t care to go into the reasons why I’m gone, but there are certainly more than thirteen. I scheduled a note to send to my parents posthumously…Even just publishing this may pain them. I don’t want to do that, I just want to leave my last mark on this world.”
Gourarie then thanked her friends on the social media platform for their support and encouragement during her mental health crisis.
“None of you could have done anything – or done more – to prevent this from happening. You all did your absolute best and for that, I am eternally grateful. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain. I love you.”
Gourarie studied psychology and neuroscience and obtained a bachelor's degree, according to her LinkedIn.
