A teenager in South Africa reportedly took her own life after a video of her being bullied by schoolmates went viral.

“Lufuno was young, and we were expecting more from her. Her departure has hurt us a lot,” said Dakalo Mavhunga, the older brother of 15-year-old Lufuno Mavhunga, told The TimesLive, a South African news site.

The girl, a 10th-grade student from Mbilwi Secondary School, is seen being confronted by two other teens in the video. One of the girls signals to the other and then slaps Lufuno “countless” times.

According to the report, the girl was attacked last Monday after blocking her perpetrator on various social media sites for sending her threatening messages.

Police spokesperson Brig. Motlafela Mojapelo said Lufuno “reportedly went home in the afternoon and, on arrival, locked herself in the room and consumed an overdose of tablets. She was apparently found by her mother lying unconscious and was taken to Siloam Hospital, where she was certified dead on arrival.”
