Gambian Actress, Princess Shyngle attempts suicide, hospitalized in Lagos
According to multiple reports, the actress was rescued by a neighbor who rushed her to Vedic Life care Hospital in Lekki after discovering that she took an overdose of a medication and drank bleach.
Princess Shyngle is currently in the emergency room because she was brought in in a critical condition. The reason behind her action is unknown for now.
The doctors at the hospital have been able to stabilize her for now, though her blood pressure keeps going up.
It is unclear what might have compelled the actress to attempt to take her own life but the actress has in the past opened up about being suicidal indicating that whenever she is faced with disappointments, the first thought that comes to mind is to end her own life.
“I cannot take disappointments. When I want something or I am looking for something and things do not work out well, the next thought that comes to mind is to commit suicide,” she stated in an interview with a Ghanaian-based newspaper in August 2017.
She also revealed that she’s been battling with these thoughts since she was eighteen years old and what triggered it was a near death experience that her father experienced.
‘’It started when I was about 18 years or so. I almost lost my dad through a fire outbreak and just the thought alone made me want to kill myself. I couldn’t see myself living my life without him and thought the best thing was to go with him,” she told Graphic Showbiz.
