How heartbreaking-what can 11 year old be going through that would cause him to do that? My sympathy goes out to these poor parents.

I wish that it was not reported as being "self inflicted", as people often assume it means "intentional" and no one can ever really know what another's intentions are. Regardless, the outcome is the same. It saddens me. My heart goes out to the family.
