TEXAS CITY — A freshman was taken to the hospital Wednesday after a suicide attempt at the Texas City High School campus.
Texas City emergency medical services were called to the high school at about 1:05 p.m. after the 15-year-old girl attempted to cut her wrists and neck, according to a Texas City Police Department’s incident report.
The girl was alert, and vital signs were stable when she was taken to the University of Texas Medical Branch’s John Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Texas City EMS Administrator Capt. Chasity Porter said.
School officials confirmed an “incident involving a young student” in one of the school’s bathrooms. Six students found the girl bleeding on the bathroom floor, officials said.
“Counselors were made available to the small number of students who were directly (affected) by this situation,” district spokeswoman Melissa Tortorici said.
Officials didn’t say what might have led to the suicide attempt.
“In order to provide the level of sensitivity and privacy that is appropriate for this situation, we are not at liberty to provide additional details,” Tortorici said.
