A university student leapt to her death from a bridge after discussing suicide methods with a friend, an inquest heard today.
“Extremely bright” Lara Nosiru, 23, had taken some medication and class A drugs when she plunged off Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol in January this year.
She went there with fellow Bristol University student Kasumi Kishi, who told police she had hoped to convince Ms Nosiru not to kill herself.
Two days later Ms Kishi told friends over a pizza how the two women had discussed suicide methods and killing themselves together.
Fellow flatmate Alex Gough claimed Ms Kishi told the group that if someone wanted to die it was cruel to make them stay alive.
Flatmate Solene Rebibo said at the meal Ms Kishi “seemed comfortable” talking about suicide to Ms Nosiru’s friends.
CCTV footage showed the two women walking across the famous bridge shortly before 4pm on January 30 with Ms Nosiru occasionally stopping and looking over the edge.
When they reached the North Somerset side Ms Nosiru, from South Ockenden, Essex, twice tried to climb onto the wall above the gorge edge but Ms Kishi pulled her back down.
They two women then appeared to have a minor disagreement before Ms Kishi walked away and left her without looking back.
The security cameras showed Ns Nosiru having a final cigarette before climbing onto the wall and falling to her death.
The inquest heard that Ms Nosiru had suffered from depression for four years and took an overdose the night before her death.
Psychotherapist Dr Niklas Serning said he had seen Ms Nosiru every week for a year and she was “extremely bright” and would discuss the meaning of life at their hourly sessions.
He told the coroner: “She reported to me she had tried to kill herself.
“New Year and Christmas was a very sensitive time for her.”
He said Ms Nosiru wanted to give life “another try” and asked him to “make my life meaningful again”.
Asked if there was anything that would have made him think she was going to take her own life, he said: “Absolutely not.”
Dr. Harrowing said Ms. Kishi was not directly involved in Ms Nosiru’s death and she had taken a “deliberate action” to jump off the bridge.
But he said he couldn’t be sure beyond reasonable doubt that she had the mental intention to take her life that day.
He concluded: “She took her own life whilst under the influence of drugs.”’
