Devastated parents were forced to pull the plug on their daughter who had been on life support machine for two weeks after she hanged herself.

10-year-old Ashawnty Davis from Colorado, USA hanged herself because a video of her being bullied was posted on social media.

Ashawnty, a fifth-grade student at Sunrise Elementary in Aurora, was involved in a fight at school in late October. The fight started when Ashawnty confronted a girl who was bullying her.
