Who is Hayden Hunstable? Hayden Hunstable Bio/Wiki
A Texas boy named ‘Hayden Hunstable’ died of suicide during the coronavirus pandemic after dealing with isolation, his father says.
Three days before his 13th birthday in April 2020, Hayden Hunstable, of Aledo, took his own life because he did not know how to cope with loneliness and depression when the emerging disease triggered a national shutdown, the UK’s Metro published.
He was 12 years old.
Hangs Himself Full Details
According to the outlet, the boy’s 9-year-old sister, Kinlee, found him hanging in his bedroom.
With the publication, Brad Hunstable shared, “I had no idea he was struggling or depressed, he was such a happy kid and loved his friends and family,”
“But Covid is a perfect storm for suicide and depression. I think everything just got on top of him, he felt overwhelmed and he made a tragic decision.”
He said to the outlet, “We need to talk to kids about suicide and talk to kids about how to deal with depression. Kids get depressed and they need to be taught how to deal with their problems,”
Hayden Hunstable’s younger sister, Kinlee Hunstable, found his body on 17 April, according to Metro UK. The New York Post added that a 9-year-old girl found her brother’s body hanging in his bedroom.
Brad Hunstable reminded Metro UK that his dad had come over to help him with their house’s water crisis. According to the publication, Hayden Hunstable had aided the two men as well.
His father said to the outlet, “It was a beautiful sunny day and I gave him a hug and a kiss on the head.” He added that between when his father left and when Kinlee Hunstable found the body of her brother, there was only a 30-minute-window.
Standing on a road I didn’t plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I’m trying to hear that still small voice
He told Metro UK, “My daughter ran downstairs and said Hayden has hung himself,”
“I ran up there, pulled him down and tried to save him. I performed CPR but I couldn’t save him. He was gone. I saw something horrific that day and I don’t wish it upon anybody. I still get nightmares about it.”
