SAPPORO–A middle school student has fallen to his death from an apartment building in an apparent bullying-related suicide.

Police believe the 12-year-old male student jumped from the building in Sapporo to kill himself.

At about 7:10 a.m. Wednesday, a neighbor found the boy lying on the street in front of the building where he lived. The boy was then taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at about 8 a.m. from severe bodily injuries, sources said.

According to Hokkaido prefectural police and the Sapporo city education board, the boy’s belongings included what appeared to be a suicide note saying, “I want to die because I’ve been bullied.”
