Original story The Sun December 10 2020
A schoolboy texted a girl he liked saying “I’m going for a while, don’t forget me” before jumping under a train in front of classmates, an inquest heard today.
Sam Connor, 14, asked a pal when a train would be going fast enough to kill him moments before the tragedy at Chertsey station in Surrey.
The Year 9 pupil, who suffered from anxiety, had received a “negative” report from The Salesian Secondary School on July 15 last year.
His family said the report would have “upset him”.
An inquest in Woking also heard how Sam had messaged a girl he liked, saying: “I’m going for a while, don’t forget me.”
CCTV was shown to the inquest today of Sam’s last moments as he waited on the platform with around 50 classmates.
He could be seen speaking with a friend as he crossed the yellow hazard line.
The inquest heard Sam was standing so close to the edge of the platform another pupil called out “don’t do it!”
This was a common joke the youngsters shared when someone was standing over the yellow line, the hearing was told.
A witness told the inquest Sam handed his bags to a peer and asked him to “look after them for a minute”.
He then tragically jumped in front of the train while singing Brighton Rock by Queen, which his pals were playing out loud at the time.
Pupils said they did not believe Sam was being bullied and explained he was popular in his own group of friends.
He had been referred to mental health workers in Surrey in July 2013 due to issues around food intake, which they believed were psychological.
But this was closed by October that year as Sam was trying new foods and seemed more positive.
Why did this child decide that he was better off dead? I mean like what the fuck?
And then he jumps in front of a train in front of 50 of his school peers?
Seems there there was something more to this story….but i guess the parents will never know……………
