YCSO DEPUTIES SAVE GIRL WHO THREATENED TO TAKE HER OWN LIFE
Yavapai County Sheriff's Deputies were called out to break up a party, and in the end saved a young girl who was trying to commit suidide.
According to YCSO, deputies were finishing up a call about a juvenile party at Thumb Butte Lookout when they were contacted by some young women concerned for their 18-year-old friend who stated she was going to toss her phone and commit suicide.
This friend was at the Thumb Butte party before she made the threat, and her Snapchat account showed her location out in the woods in a rugged and remote area with a 45-minute inactivity window.
With help from the girls, Deputies searched the area near the Snapchat location marker and located the girl near a ledge on the ridgeline. She was intoxicated, suffering from minor lacerations, and indicated that she wanted to throw herself off the ledge.
Deputies were able to talk her into coming with them and they transported her to a location where Lifeline Ambulance could take her to the hospital. The young lady is reportedly getting the help she needs. YCSO officials say the girl's friends are to be commended for reporting their concerns, which most likely saved the girl's life.
