A social media giant is working to help prevent suicides.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers has the story:

Saying it's in a "unique position" to help people, Facebook is giving its users more suicide prevention tools. It includes new options for people to report if someone might harm themselves while broadcasting on Facebook Live.

The people watching Facebook would be able to report the video, and Facebook can contact emergency workers if the person is in imminent danger. The person filming it will also be shown a set of resources that would pop up on their phone screen so they can contact a friend or a help line.

Those who may be feeling depressed will also have easier ways to contact crisis workers through Facebook messenger.
