Second Parkland shooting survivor dies in suicide, cops confirm

The students age, sex and name have not been released but Coral Springs Police Department Public Information Officer Tyler Reik said the deceased was a juvenile and a current student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The death comes approximately a week after Stoneman Douglas graduate Sydney Aiello, 19, died by suicide, according to the Broward County Medical Examiners Office.

Earlier this week, Cara told CBS4’s Carey Codd that her daughter was on campus the day of the shooting but not in Freshman Building. She said Sydney struggled with survivor’s guilt and was recently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Aiello’s mother, Cara, and members of the Parkland community came together and said this is an important time to remind everyone of the number of resources available for those who need help.

Aiello had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after surviving the Feb. 14, 2018, shooting at Stoneman Douglas, which left 17 people dead.

Cara said Sydney struggled to attend college classes because she was afraid of being in a classroom and was often sad recently but never asked for help before she killed herself.

Aiellos mother Cara, told CBS Miami that her daughter was struggling with her college classes because classrooms now scared her.

“Ive been asked before how we get over grief and trauma. This is proof enough- its not something to get over,” Delaney Tarr, a survivor of last years shooting, wrote, adding that other survivors need support.

A student who attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, reportedly took their own life. Another student from the school, which was the site of a February 2018 mass shooting, also killed themselves several days ago.

The news of the second death comes on the first anniversary of the March For Our Lives rally, a student-led demonstration that was held across the country in response to the Feb. 14 shooting.
