Teen attempts suicide after being punished
A male student of a Hanover high school is now in hospital, following what police sources have described as a case of attempted suicide.
Information reaching The STAR is that the student was spoken to repeatedly by his parents with regards to his low grades, and the amount of time he spends on his cell phone.
The STAR was told that his father had taken away one phone from him, with the hope that he would pay more attention to his schoolwork.
JUMPED FROM ROOF
However, while the boy and his mother were at home recently, it was discovered that he had acquired another cell phone, for which his mother reprimanded him.
A few minutes afterwards, a loud sound was heard and it was discovered that the boy had climbed to the top of the family home and jumped.
He was taken to hospital, and admitted in a serious condition. An appeal for blood donation towards his treatment is now out in his community.
If he survives the ordeal, the boy could be later charged with attempted suicide.
