Just because they couldn’t be together, a teenage couple committed suicide by running hand in hand into the path of a train because of their cultural differences
Charleigh Disbrey, 15, known as CJ to friends, died alongside 18-year-old Turkish boyfriend Mert Karaoglan in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.
According to UK Mirror, the young couple climbed a 6ft fence to get on to the tracks and were struck by the empty train. Shortly before they killed themselves Mert sent a photograph to a friend of the smiling pair standing on a bridge over the railway line.
He texted the friend telling him to find his phone which would explain they would ‘never be together in this life and would rather be together in a different place.’
The couple were seen by the London First Capital Connect driver running down the tracks hand in hand, but he was unable to do anything to avoid hitting them.
