The father of a teenage boy who hanged himself last year after being diagnosed with cancer died in an accident, a family friend said Wednesday.
A suicide note was found by his father in the family’s car on April 6 and his family has been trying to figure out what triggered the young man’s decision to end his life, the friend said.
The suicide note, written in German and addressed to his son, read, “I’m very sad.
I know I’m going to die.
I hope that someday I’ll see you and my son again.”
The note was sent by the family to a family member who has been dealing with the death of their son.
It was written in a German accent, and the father was the only person to read it, the man said.
The young man had been diagnosed with lung cancer in July and the family feared for his health.
His mother said he had been trying not to be upset about the cancer diagnosis.
On Thursday, the family announced the suicide.
“We’ve been in a bad situation and we didn’t know how we would get through it.
But we will,” the family friend, who asked not to have his name used, told The Associated Press.
He said the young woman was diagnosed with breast cancer in May and she had been in and out of the hospital for treatment.
In the note, the young father described the loss of his son.
The family was devastated and we have lost a son who loved life and the world, he wrote.
“We were very worried about him, and now he’s gone.
But I am so sad.”
At least two other boys were found hanging from a bridge last month after being bullied by other boys, police said.
Police said Wednesday they found the bodies of four boys in their 20s and 20s hanging in a wooded area off of the town of Ujwalj near the border with India.
The bodies had their throats cut, police and relatives said.
