A woman has been taken to hospital after an apparent suicide attempt in a Bridgend garden.

The 23-year-old Cardiff woman was taken to Bridgend's Princess of Wales Hospital after she was found just after 5pm on Sunday.

According to reports today the woman was found by 11-year-old Cory Harvey, whose friends Chris Davies and Robin Hill, both 16, tried to keep her alive until help arrived.

A police spokeswoman would not confirm details surrounding the incident but confirmed a woman had tried to kill herself.

He said: "Officers attended an address in the Bridgend area shortly after 5pm on Sunday where a 23-year-old woman from the Cardiff area had attempted to take her own life. She was taken to hospital."

The incident follows, but is not believed to be linked to, the apparent suicides of 17 young people in the Bridgend borough in the last 15 months.
