The Pretext

Jonathan Bailey, 50 – who was known as Baz or Bazza – was apparently found dead at an address in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

This was right after he announced on Facebook he intended to take his own life.

The social media giant said the broadcast was deleted “very soon” after being posted.

A mental health campaigner apparently live-streamed his own death on Facebook!

This was as dozens watching begged him to stop.

The Situation

Popular community champion Jonathan Bailey – who was known as Baz or Bazza – told his social media followers that he intended to take his own life before launching the broadcast.

His supporters frantically alerted Facebook to what was happening but the live-stream continued.

The 50-year-old was pronounced dead after paramedics were called to reports of a ‘medical emergency’.

This was at an address on Larkspur Grove, in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Now Facebook has come under fire for failing to stop the live-stream which saw more than 400 people watching, according to reports.

The End

The live-stream was later deleted.

The result of any post-mortem examination has not been disclosed yet.

A Facebook company spokesman said: “Our thoughts go out to Mr Bailey’s family at this difficult time.

“We can confirm that the live-stream was deleted very soon after being posted and a further post has also now been removed at the family’s request.
