DR. KING'S SUICIDE ATTEMPT

At age 12, King attempted suicide after the death of his grandmother. The day she died, he attended a parade against his parent’s wishes. While he was gone, his little brother knocked his grandmother unconscious while sliding down a banister and King blamed himself for the death. Since he was so young, he didn’t realize that the unconsciousness was unrelated to his grandmother’s heart attack. Being distraught and emotional, he jumped out a second story window at his family’s home.
