Kuala Lumpur — Malaysian YouTuber Yang Bao Bei aka Kalysta is reported to have tried to commit suicide on Saturday (April 17) sometime between 11 am and 12.30 pm.
Yang tried to jump from the fifth floor of a building in Puchong, reported Hype.my, quoting China Press. Eight firemen from the Serdang Fire and Rescue Station managed to arrive at the scene to rescue her.
It was reported that Yang bid her followers goodbye on her Telegram group saying, “Only death can atone for sins”, before her suicide attempt.
A week ago, Yang complained that her ex had cheated on her while they were still dating. She posted on Instagram about being single and not needing to be in an unhealthy relationship.
Yang’s bubble tea business also ended last year due to a lack of sales because of the pandemic.
Netizens have been speculating why she wanted to commit suicide.
Her family issued a public apology on her Instagram Story, saying they are trying to find out what happened. “Sorry for the inconvenience caused. If you have any enquiries, please leave a message and we’ll revert at the soonest time possible,” they said in a statement.
About a week ago, the YouTuber apologised for worrying her followers after overdosing on tranquillisers. Yang wrote in a caption for a photo taken with her friends that she is not shortsighted. Saying that life is good and she is surrounded by people who love her, Yang promised to look forward to better days, reported Hype.my.
She told her followers that taking the tranquillisers was a mistake but did not say why she took them. A few people have come forward with their own stories about Yang. Word on the street is that the 27-year-old may be in debt.
