Archival photo from HürriyetFour girls between the ages of 14 and 16, attempted to commit suicide in a rehabilitation center in Istanbul's Kemerburgaz area, daily Milliyet reported.
The girls reportedly stole medicine from the infirmary, then returned to their rooms to swallow the pills. One of the girls panicked after another lost consciousness and alerted personnel. All four girls were immediately taken to a hospital nearby.
The girls took the pills because they were "bored with life,” according to Milliyet.
"We've been planning to escape, then we thought of attempting suicide," one of girls said. "It was easier for us to escape once we were brought to the hospital. That's why we chose that method."
