The Pearland Independent School District informed Thursday a student from Dawson High School attempted to commit suicide.

A LifeFlight helicopter leaves Glenda Dawson High School in Pearland Texas on November 30, 2017.

The young boy was attempting to hang himself in a stairwell, just before school started.

A student showed up a little earlier than normal Thursday, just before 6:30 a.m., but it wasn't because he wanted to get ahead on his school work, police said.


However, three teachers came to the rescue and managed to save the boy's life by lowering him from the rope and performing first aid until police officers arrived, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The student's condition is unknown at the time, but Wells said that the teachers saved the boy's life. According to KPRC, the teacher called for help before two male coaches came rushing to the scene.

A Kansas City School District teacher has been placed on administrative leave and police are investigating an allegation of inappropriate sexual relations between that teacher and a student.

School administrators told police that the victim and the student who reported the misconduct were close friends until recently when they had "a falling out", according to the police report. School officials say those schools are on a "soft lockdown", which means students aren't being allowed to take part in outside activities. Police said he was alive when he arrived but nothing has been released in terms of his current status. Eyewitness News has learned a second Pearland ISD student attempted suicide this week.
