A 24-year-old Brooklyn woman jumped to her death from the Vessel in Hudson Yards after scheduling a tragic Instagram post — which appeared after her suicide.
“I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain,” Yocheved Gourarie wrote.
On Tuesday, Gourarie, of Crown Heights, bought a ticket to the Vessel, a tourist attraction, and walked to the highest level. She then climbed atop the railing and jumped, police said.
EMS, responding to a 911 call, pronounced Gourarie dead at the scene.
“Hey…. I guess if you don’t know by now you should probably sit down,” she wrote.
“If you’re reading this, I’m gone. Either that or somehow incapacitated in the hospital so I can’t delete this scheduled post. I really hope I’m not though.
“I don’t care to go into the reasons why I’m gone, but there are certainly more than thirteen. I scheduled a note to send to my parents posthumously….Even just publishing this may pain them. I don’t want to do that, I just want to leave my last mark on this world.”
She concluded, “All of you have made my life so much more full, brighter, and happier than it would have been without you. Your support, your encouragement, your hugs, your invitations, your smiles, your texts, your tagging me in memes you think I’d find funny.
“None of you could have done anything – or done more – to prevent this from happening. You all did your absolute best and for that I am eternally grateful. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain.
“I love you.”
According to her LinkedIn page, Gourarie earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology and neuroscience at CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College.
Earlier Instagram posts reveal she had openly shared her experience with mental illness, and expressed gratitude for the support she had received.
