Detroit is turning into one of the saddest cities in the country. There are children committing suicide before the age of 10, prominent members of the community being robbed and carjacked, and budgetary problems that are leaving the city in ruins. This story is especially heart breaking, considering that a 9-year old boy is involved. The pain in the city of Detroit seems to be growing, with little to no help in sight. We have to wonder if there will ever come a time when this once great city will see prosperity again. We are praying for their recovery.
Detroit police say that a 9 year old boy jumped out of his ninth-floor apartment home and died. The unfortunate death happened on Wednesday.
After the boy fell, there were no paramedics to respond to the emergency so the boy was taken to the hospital in a police car, said the Detroit police. A state lawmaker is speaking out saying that the EMS did not show up because of city budget cuts.
According to the police, leading up to his death, the boy had threatened to take his own life. Less than two months ago, another Detroit boy also took his own life. The 7 year old boy hung himself with a belt tied to his bunk bed.
