A sexually abused teenager accidentally killed herself as her tormentor cycled past, an inquest concluded today.
Chevonea Kendall-Bryan died after falling from her family's fourth floor flat in Seldon House, Savona Street, Battersea, on March 29, 2011.
A month before the 13-year-old was forced to perform a sex act on a teenage boy who filmed it on his phone.
It was passed around her school, St Cecilia’s School, in Sutherland Grove, Southfields, which resulted in cruel bullying from her peers.
Today a coroner recorded an eight point narrative verdict of her death, which was the result of an accident.
Bernard Richmond QC said Chevonea was leaning out of the window as the boy cycled past, threatening to jump.
He said: "At a time when she knew him to be on the pavement below her bedroom, Chevonea climbed out onto the window ledge.
"She was attempting to demonstrate to him that she would jump if he did not do as she asked.
"She either jumped or lost her balance and fell whilst on the ledge. She had no settled intention to kill herself."
After Chevonea moved into year nine she reluctantly went to the party where she alleged she was raped, North Westminster Coroners' Court heard.
The following day, another boy forced her to perform oral sex on him after he threatened to smash all the windows in her flat, it was said.
Chevonea told her school she had been raped and they passed on the information to social services.
It was recommended she should see a mental health professional, but the referral was never followed up by the school.
Hours before her death Chevonea had changed her Blackberry messenger profile to read "F*** this life".
She also texted another friend saying "he wants me to jump".
