Three girls from one family have committed suicide on Saturday, April 27, 2019, in Kafr al-Dawar area of Egypt.

A 17-year-old Egyptian student and her 15-year-old cousin committed suicide with a suicide pill as they were passing through bad psychological states.

When the mother of one of the girls heard about their death, she suffered from a heart attack and was referred to a hospital, yet she died immediately.

Shortly after the youngest daughter of the mother knew about the death of her sister and mother, she committed suicide by throwing herself from a balcony, according to Al-Gomhuria, “The Republic" Egyptian newspaper.

The two girls have been referred to Kafr al-Dawar Hospital after they took a poison pill which caused them cardiac arrest.

For their part, the Egyptian police have opened an investigation into the tragic incident.
