March 30, 2018


EAGLE PASS - A 16-year-old Eagle Pass girl was rushed to the hospital Thursday night after jumping from an overpass in an attempt to end her life, Eagle Pass Police said.

Police said at around 11:30 PM patrol officers responded to a suicide attempt at the overpass located on Veterans Blvd.

When police arrived, they found the teen under the bridge with several serious but non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the teenager survived the jump after landing on debris and not on the pavement.

The teenager was quickly transported to the local hospital and later referred to a mental health center.

Because the girl is a minor, her identity wasn't released.
