The lad went into a cloak room in the hospital in a fit of despondency, got on a chair, attatched [sic] one end of his belt to an iron pipe and swung off. He probobly [sic] could have been saved by his companions had they realized the necessity of hurring [sic], but they called assistance first. When attendants arrived the boy was dead.
