Colorado: 10-year-old minor strangled herself over 'bullying'

Colorado: 10-year-old minor strangled herself over 'bullying'”

In October, the 10-year-old reportedly confronted a girl, who she claimed had been bullying her at Sunrise Elementary in Aurora.

The Cherry Creek School District, of which Sunrise Elementary School is a part of, said Ashawnty's death is "a heartbreaking loss" for the community.

Ziegler has no direct knowledge of this case, but said in general bullying and especially cyber-bullying can create serious problems for kids especially at 10 years old.

Despite their heartbreak, Ashwanty's parents say they want their daughter's tragic story to be a warning about the grave threat of bullying, and chose the share the video of the fight with the news station. The statement noted the fight shown in the video did not take place during school hours.

The fifth-grader was an "offspring of delight", as per her dad Anthony Davis - however she changed after she got into her initially battle at school in October.

Ziegler said it can be hard for parents to detect suicidal tendencies in kids as young as 10 years old, but they should look for changes in their behavioral patterns and talk to them about it.

"It's just devastating", her father said.

Two weeks after the fight, Ashawnty took her own life.

Ashawnty was in the hospital for almost two weeks on life support before she died on Wednesday.

The child then spent two weeks on life support at the Children's Hospital Colorado before passing away.

After footage of a fifth-grader was uploaded online, the girl reportedly couldn't take the pressure from the intensified bullying and chose to kill herself.

"I want other parents to know that it's happening", the little girl's mother told KDVR. Her parents say she is a victim of "bullycide", when a person died by suicide after being the subject of bullying. Mental health support will be made available for any students who need help processing the loss.

'We do not tolerate bullying of any kind in our schools and we have a comprehensive bullying prevention program in place at all of our schools. The safety and well-being of students is our highest priority, and we strive every day to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning.

The district said it turned the video over to police when made aware of it and addressed the matter with students.
