Two More Threatened Suicides By Train

Original post made by RC, another community, on Jun 15, 2009

None of the newspapers picked up on the two threatened suicides this last weekend. The first was a male on Friday night, and the second was a female on Saturday night. Both blogged (Facebook) or texted their threats, which lead to the discovery by parents and/or police. Both incidents were not followed through with the male being placed on a psyc hold (up to 72 hours).

RC,

Suicide threats aren't usually reported--and I'm sure here there's a decision to not do so because of concerns about contagion in this case. I'm glad the parents were paying attention.
