(Scroll down for video) A family is devastated after their daughter died during school hours.
The 17 year old was a talented student at a school in New York, when she allegedly committed suicide out of shame after she was caught cheating.
Adeoye Omotayo attended the Harlem Middle School for Math, Science and Engineering, when she was caught looking at her cellphone during a German language exam.
Teacher Eva Malikova allegedly grabbed the girl’s cellphone and began admonishing the girl over her cheating. “You guys shouldn’t be cheating! You guys are lying to yourselves,” the teacher told Omotayo.
The humiliated teen apologized and then went to the bathroom, but she never returned to her desk.
After missing for 30 minutes, the school called police.
Witnesses said they saw a girl jump into the Hudson River.
Police believe that the 17 year old walked to the shore of the Hudson River at 165th Street West, put her ID down near the river and jumped into the water. She has not yet been found.
