It's unclear how many children attempt suicide and fail, but the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention says that on average, taking into account adult statistics, there are 25 attempts for every life lost.

It happened about 4:18 p.m. today (Saturday), when Virginia State Police responded to an incident in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 66 at the Cedar Lane overpass near Exit 62 for Nutley Street in Fairfax County.

The father added that Harris came from a "long line of psychologists", since her grandfather also practised the profession, and said that the nature of her death was "the irony that we're looking at right now".

Harris, according to her mother, was studying mental health counseling in a graduate program at Marymount University.

Harris was a Towson University graduate who was just finishing her first semester studying clinical counseling at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia, her mother said. They said she was fond of working with and helping children having severe behavioral problems. "I miss her so much".
