Mobile phone used to film suicide
A man filmed himself jumping to his death on his mobile video phone and beamed the live images to his horrified girlfriend, an inquest heard. Lee Morgan, 20, jumped from the Humber Bridge after a New Year's Eve row with Sherrie Smith. The couple had got engaged on Christmas Day.
Hull coroner Geoffrey Saul was told Mr Morgan had called his fiancee after leaving the party from the landmark bridge.
She said: "I could see the lights. It went black and the phone cut out."
The inquest heard a bridge worker saw Mr Morgan jump while holding his phone. His body was not found until February 9.
Miss Smith told the hearing her fiancee was not drunk but had been in a "strange mood" at the party and was "looking for an argument over the silliest of things", according to a report in the Daily Mirror.
She told him to calm down and phone in the morning but he called an hour later from the bridge.
