He had just walked out of her life, with no apparent reason. The pain of losing him had hurt so bad that she longed to end her life that night.

Grace had fallen on the broken glass which missed her liver and pancreas by inches. She bled for a while before Hillary came to her apartment to collect his jacket. That is how he found her, interrupting her wish for death.
