The Ottawa Police Service is reminding residents to call if they know of someone who intends to harm themselves.
Officers in the city's east end were dispatched to a call on January 28, about a woman who was intending to die by suicide. The call came from a concerned person who knew her.
Upon searching the woman's home, officers found clear evidence of her plan to take her own life.
In talking to the woman, emergency responders learned she hadn’t been taking her medication or eating.
The woman voluntarily went with paramedics and police to the hospital to be checked by doctors. Fortunately, she was able to get assistance.
