10-Year-Old Colorado Girl Hangs Herself After Being Bullied At School

The parents of a 10-year-old Colorado girl who took her own life say their daughter's school district may not have done enough to prevent the alleged bullying that led to her death.

"She got into her first ever fight".

Two weeks later, the 10-year-old would hang herself in her bedroom closet.

Ashawnty Davis died Wednesday after spending nearly two weeks in hospital on life support for trying to hang herself, local Fox 31 reports.

They said that the abuse their daughter took turned her into a different person.

The death of Ashawnty Davis in Aurora, Colorado, is being investigated as a suicide by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office, KUSA reported.

A 17-year-old NY boy killed himself last month by stepping in front of a train after his parents said he suffered years of bullying from fellow students that school officials did nothing about.

Davis confronted the girl about the bullying.

A wireless video of the battle was posted via web-based networking media, and her dad told KDVR, "She was crushed when she discovered it had made it to Musical.ly".

Adding, 'She was just a child of joy and she brought joy to everyone'. "The safety and wellbeing of students is our highest priority and we strive every today to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning".

Ashwanty's parents consider their daughter a victim of "Bullycide", a term used to describe a suicide that is the result of bullying.

"We are very much focused on supporting the students and school community as they navigate this heartbreaking situation", Smith said.
