A second Parkland shooting survivor has died in an "apparent suicide"

The 2018 Valentine's Day massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School was the deadliest school shooting in history, claiming the lives of 17 students and staff and leaving another 17 injured.

This prompted mass calls for America's gun laws to be reformed. At the forefront of which were the surviving students from Parkland, Florida who used their experience as a force for good.

In the video below, two of the founders from the March for Our Lives explain tell their story: 

Tragically, just over a year later, a second surviving student has completed suicide, the Miami Herald reports.

The incident, which was described by the Miami Herald as an "apparent suicide", happened on Saturday night.

While the student's name has yet to be released, they are reported to have been a sophomore at the school.
