Concern over child suicide attempts

In the span of about a week, doctors at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children have seen four children hanged or attempted to hang themselves. Prior to this cluster, St. Christopher's saw one case this past January and one in all of 2009. There's no indication this is a city-wide trend, but doctors say there is a clear spike here and are worried more will come.
