Teen Sets Himself on Fire in Suicide Attempt

 

Hemera

A Sophomore from Standley Lake High School in Westminster lit himself on fire in the school cafeteria Monday morning in what police call a suicide attempt.

Fire officials say more than 80 percent of the teen’s body was burned. The 16-year-old tried to kill himself by dousing himself with oil and setting himself on fire just after 7 a.m. He was taken to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Vince Nett did leave a suicide note on social media saying, “This is not someone’s fault. I had this planned for years.” A teacher suffered minor lacerations to her hand while trying to get the fire extinguisher from its glass container. She was treated at the scene.
