MIAMI (WFOR/CNN) - The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School community is mourning another loss.
Sydney Aiello, 19, was a recent graduate who was at the school the day of the mass shooting when 17 people lost their lives.
Aiello’s mother said her daughter took her own life last weekend. A teacher described Aiello as a joy to have in class.
She was close friends with Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.
Aiello’s mother said her daughter felt survivor’s guilt and was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after being on campus the day of the shooting last year.
Aiello struggled to attend college classes because she was afraid of being in a classroom and was sad, but she never asked for help before she killed herself, her mother said..
