STUDENTS – A student from Lyon threatened to defenestate Tuesday, January 12, before being quickly taken care of, a few days after the suicide attempt of another student in Villeurbanne, in the metropolis of Lyon, we learned this Wednesday the 13th from corroborating sources.
The facts took place shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday in a studio in the Les Arches d’Agrippa residence, located in the city’s 5th arrondissement, said the CROUS and the firefighters, confirming information from the regional daily Progress.
Rescued by her neighbors
“She was really on the verge of taking action. She spoke out loudly, enough for her neighbors to hear her, understand what she was going to do, and mobilize. Some to talk to him and others to call for help, ”Alicia Treppoz-Vielle told AFP the communications director of the CROUS in Lyon.
The reasons that could have led the young woman to want to kill her life are not known, said the official, adding that the student was not followed for depressive disorders. The latter is currently hospitalized and a psychological unit has been installed in this residence of nearly 300 students.
This incident, which takes place in a health context linked to covid-19 weighing heavily on students, echoes the suicide attempt on Saturday in Villeurbanne of a law student who threw himself from the window of his university room. The circumstances of his action have not been communicated. The young man has been between life and death ever since.
“A prison cell, with Wi-Fi”
One of his classmates, Romain Narbonnet, then reacted by posting a message on his Facebook page on the current isolation of the students.
“Like any student, we are in social isolation (…). We stay 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in our university rooms measuring the same dimensions as a prison cell, however with Wi-Fi. How much weight can a student bear? ”He wondered.
“It is vital to keep schools open but universities and students then seem secondary. We are then, let’s say it, left on the side of the road, ”he adds.
On Tuesday, the discomfort of young people in the face of the crisis and of students in particular was at the heart of a debate in the National Assembly. Prime Minister Jean Castex announced that he would receive representatives of the university community on Friday. A national day of mobilization is scheduled for January 20 to demand the reopening of universities.
