Online Self-Harm, Suicide Threats

Two calls to police about self-harm online since Tuesday night.

Since Tuesday night, police have been called twice after people online threatened self-harm.

At 8:58 p.m., a mom said her child was chatting to someone online who posted a status update claiming he was cutting himself. That call came from the 27700 block of Killarney.

About an hour later, Mission Viejo police were asked to check on the welfare of a 15-year-old girl who said on Skype that she "doesn't know how she is going to go on living" and "she wants to end it."

Both calls were recorded in the Orange County Sheriff's Department online blotter.

According to the OCSD website:

The calls represent what was told to the deputy in the field by the radio dispatcher. The true nature of an incident often differs from what is initially reported. No assumption of criminal guilt or affiliation should be drawn from the content of the information provided.
