Suicide attempt at charter school in Jersey City

JERSEY CITY – A 13-year-old student allegedly tried to attempt suicide in the bathroom at Beloved Charter School on Jan. 21 according to Kimberly Wallace-Scalcione, spokesperson for the Jersey City Department of Public Safety.
Wallace-Scalcione said Jersey City police officers responded to the school at 508 Grand St. at about 2 p.m. on the report of an attempted suicide.
“A school official advised police of a 13-year-old student who had attempted to harm herself in the girl’s bathroom,” she said. “The student was conscious and talking when she was taken by ambulance to the Jersey City Medical Center.”
The suicide attempt follows a series of reports concerning suicides that have taken place as the Hudson County Correctional Facility, and the murder of an 18-year-old Jersey City high school student this week.
