MOORESVILLE, N.C. – A Lake Norman High School student was taken to the hospital after they were found unresponsive by another student Thursday morning.
According to the Iredell County Sheriff’s Office, the student was found just after 10 a.m. Deputies say school administrators worked to remove the student from a makeshift noose while the school’s nurse and resource officer provided emergency CPR and first aid to the student.
Typically, NBC Charlotte doesn't cover suicides or suicide attempts, but this case is different because a student was discovered at school by a classmate.
