A 13-year-old girl attempted to commit suicide Wednesday when she jumped 35 feet into the Verdugo Wash and sustained non-life-threatening injuries, Glendale police said.
The girl, whose name wasn’t released because she’s a minor, was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where she was treated for a herniated disc, police said.
Police received calls about 4:30 a.m. that the girl was screaming for help after she jumped into the wash at Jackson Street and Monterey Road, police said.
Officers found the girl, who was carrying a suicide note, shortly thereafter, police said.
The incident was referred to the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services.
