Girls leap from windows in ‘death pact’

‘Two French teenage girls were seriously injured when they jumped out of windows of different buildings in what appeared to be a coordinated suicide attempt, police have said.

A 14-year-old and a 15-year-old, who attended the same school on the Mediterranean island of Corsica, threw themselves out of a third floor and second floor window at their respective homes minutes after each other yesterday.

One witness told investigators he had overheard one of the girls telling the other on the phone: “Come on, we’ll do it: You jump. I jump!”

One of the girls had previously been in psychiatric care, a medical source said.

Hospital staff said the two girls were in a serious condition.’
