Chayya Lal, 16, from the central state of Madhya Pradesh, committed suicide after watching television reports on how the particle-smashing test in Geneva could bring about doomsday, Indian newspapers reported. She swallowed unidentified tablets on Tuesday and was rushed to hospital, but doctors were unable to save her. Chayya’s parents said she had spoken of her fears about the “Big Bang” experiment. “Chayya had asked me a number of times whether the world would end as they were saying on television,” her father Bihari told the Hindustan Times. – physorg
