Police respond to alleged suicide attempt at Glendale High School

[UPDATED 3:50 p.m.] A 15-year-old Glendale High School student reportedly attempted suicide on campus Tuesday by jumping from the top of an outdoor ramp as tall as a second story, injuring her ankles and knees, police said.

The female, a sophomore who was not identified, was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

Witnesses reported that the student was sitting on the ramp when she jumped feet first onto the ground, Lightfoot said. There was no indication she was pushed.

Glendale Unified Supt. Dick Sheehan said the girl did not suffer any broken bones in the fall, and was recuperating at the hospital with her family.


“The student’s in the care of her parents and is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances,” he said.
