Video of a 12-year-old US girl’s suicide broadcast live has gone viral around the world, and local police say they’re unable to do anything about it.

Katelyn Nicole Davis of Cedartown in northern Georgia posted the 40-minute video on December 30 showing her placing her phone in her front yard, tying a rope around a tree limb and saying goodbye to her family and friends in front of the camera.

“I’m sorry that I’m not pretty enough,” she says in tears, carefully made up and dressed in a white blouse and jeans. “I’m sorry for everything. I’m really, truly sorry. But I can’t do this.”

The video then shows her tying the rope around her neck and hanging herself.

It was later posted on other websites, including Facebook.

According to reports, the 20-minute video was filmed in her backyard and played out as a woman’s voice was heard calling her name in the distance.
