A Canadian study shows the risk of suicide among those who've survived a first attempt is 42 times higher than that of the general population. Toronto researchers tracked every person who came to a hospital emergency department in Ontario for self-poisoning between April 2002 and December 2010. Dr. Yaron Finkelstein (yar-OWN' FINK'-ehl-steen) at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children says it's important to track these people. (Researchers identified nearly 65-thousand-800 children and adults who survived a self-poisoning episode and found more than four-thousand died during the followup study period -- 976 of them by suicide.)
