Yarraka shared a video oh her nine-year-old son in which he expresses his desire to die following a day of bullying at school. The video has since gone viral, having been seen by over 23 million people.
In the heartwrenching viral video, the Australian boy is seen crying uncontrollably asking his own mother who is filming him, to give him a knife so he can kill himself. Quaden who is seen seated at the back of his mother’s car, tells the camera: “Give me a knife, I want to kill myself.”
