A 10-year-old girl was found hanged at her home in Kawasaki City in Kanagawa Prefecture on Friday afternoon, police said Monday. According to police, the girl apparently hanged herself with a rope attached to the door of her room.
Her mother found her around 5 p.m. and called for an ambulance. She was taken to hospital where she died approximately 30 minutes after arrival, hospital officials said.
Police said she did not leave any suicide note and added that there had been no reports of any bullying trouble.
Meanwhile, TV Asahi reported Monday afternoon that the girl asked her mother a month ago, "Would it hurt if I hanged myself?"
Police have not yet ruled whether it was an accident or suicide.© News reports
