13-year-old Isabel Laxamana threw herself off an overpass after her father reportedly posted a shaming video of her onto YouTube.

Isabel, from Tacoma, Washington, US, died in hospital on Friday 29th of May.

Footage was posted online days earlier of Isabel standing in a room with some of her hair on the floor.

“The consequences of getting messed up, man, you lost all that beautiful hair, was it worth it?” her father said in the video.

“How many times did I warn you?” he asks.

“A lot,’ she replies.

A Facebook page has since been set up which is dedicated to raising awareness of parent shaming called “Justice for Isabel”.
