R.I.P. Hellen Wendy
I knew life is short but Hellen Wendy drowning and dying in less than 3 minutes while on a Facebook live made me realize life is even shorter than I thought. Each breath you take might be your last. Wow! pic.twitter.com/Oo1R1EHzqL— mursik activist (@formulakipkorir) August 19, 2022
Hellen Wendy drowns and dies in a swimming pool while live on Facebook at around minute 11. Live goes on for more than 1hr 30min before anybody notices. RIP🕊 pic.twitter.com/ahL5cHpWJW— The Trends (@TheTrendsKe) August 19, 2022
That incident of Hellen Wendy who drowned in a swimming pool; A great lesson about social media vs reality. She was in the company of facebook family perhaps over a hundred viewers but died because in reality she was alone.😢— Manucho™ (@Manucho_Sambu) August 21, 2022
