A 14-year-old girl who had talked about suicide died in a hospital a day after hanging herself in a bathroom at her Utah school, school officials said.

A classmate had found Kailey Mathews unconscious in the bathroom at South Cache 8-9 Center on Wednesday. On Thursday, the students were notified of her death.

"Her friends would tell you that she had talked about" suicide, principal Teri Cutler said. "It's important to note that never were the discussions ignored. She was talked to. We tried to talk to her."

Cutler described the girl as a "very bright" student with "good friends and a lot of people who cared about her."
