A 19-year-old female student called the police after she attempted to kill herself by jumping from a building in a university campus in Sha Tin, the New Territories on Tuesday.

The student surnamed Lee, who is said to be a student of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). attempted to commit suicide by jumping from Mong Man Wai Building on the university campus at 4am, Oriental Daily reported.

It was understood that she jumped from the 8th floor rooftop and landed on a ledge on the 7th floor. Although she suffered injuries, she remained conscious and called the police asking for help.

Police officers and firemen arrived and rescued her from the ledge before sending her to hospital for medical treatment. She was said to be in stable condition.

Police searched the area and found a suicide note revealing that the student was under pressure from her studies.

A spokesperson of the CUHK said a security staff member accompanied the student to hospital, where she was later visited by university staff. The university said they will provide necessary assistance to the student and cooperate with the police investigation.
