A Bronx mother was horrified to find 9-year-old daughter hanging from a shower curtain last night in their Morris Park-area home. She was immediately rushed to Jacobi Hospital, but was pronounced dead just 12 minutes later.
“It’s a tragedy,” a neighbor of the family said. “It’s sad. It’s very sad.”
For now, police believe the death was a suicide. Should that definitely be the case, she will be the second young girl to have committed suicide in the Bronx in less than a year.
