Durban – Two kids stood between life and death for their suicidal mom in Verulam on Saturday morning when they rescued her from hanging herself in their home.
According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA), the mother had tried to take her own life following a domestic dispute with her husband earlier.
The 32-year-old mom locked herself in the bathroom and texted her 10-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter telling them that she was going to kill herself.
The two kids teamed up to break the door and rescued their mother.
They found their mother lying on the floor of the bathroom.
She had attempted to hang herself with a scarf from a railing in the bathroom but it broke while.
RUSA provided trauma support for the kids while medics attended to their mother.
