Photography Teacher At California High School Found Hanged In Classroom
A California school teacher hanged herself in her classroom Monday, leaving students to make the disturbing discovery.
The stunned teens and another teacher pulled down the 31-year-old woman during her last gasps of life and called for help, according to media reports.
Emergency responders arrived shortly after the 8:30 a.m. discovery at El Dorado High School in Placentia and found the teacher in full cardiac arrest, school officials said.
“Paramedics performed life saving measures, however after several minutes the victim was declared deceased at the scene,” a Placentia Yorba Linda Unified School District spokesman said in a statement. “The initial investigation indicates the cause of death to be suicide.”
Distraught students identified the teacher as Jillian Jacobson, a popular photography instructor.
“Thank you so much Mrs. Jacobson for teaching me how to take amazing photos, and also for being a great friend,” one wrote on Twitter.
Several students claimed Jacobson’s father had also committed suicide and she had often counseled students about the dangers, according to the Orange County Register.
