UK Teenager Saved By Facebook

I know I have been publishing stories about facebook a lot lately, but here is another one!

clipped from news.bbc.co.uk

A British teenager who took a drugs overdose has been saved after the American girl he was chatting to online raised the alarm.

The 16-year-old boy from Oxfordshire had sent her a message suggesting he intended to commit suicide.

Although she did not know where he lived, calls via the White House and the British Embassy enabled Abingdon police to save the boy’s life.

The boy, who has not been named, made a full recovery after hospital treatment.
