Parkland Massacre Survivor Sydney Aiello Commits Suicide
Sydney Aiello, a 19-year-old survivor of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre, has sadly taken her own life.
Aiello recently graduated and the news of her passing was announced by her mother Cara Aiello, on Friday. She revealed that her daughter took her own life last weekend.
Following the horrific Valentine’s Day massacre, Sydney suffered deeply from post-traumatic stress and had survivor’s guilt.
CBS Miami reports that Cara also said her daughter was enrolled in classes but struggled to attend because she was afraid to be in a classroom after the attack. She was also close friends with Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.
Her mom hopes Sydney’s story can help save others.
“It breaks my heart that we’ve lost yet another student from Stoneman Douglas,” said Ryan Petty, who lost his daughter in the shooting.
As we reported, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people during Valentine’s day shooting massacre in 2018, he faces the death penalty.
