Students Hurt Themselves After Watching TV Show

A popular television show is being blamed after 10 Hull elementary students committed acts of self-mutilation.

The Saint-Paul students, between the ages of 10 and 13, apparently cut themselves with sharp objects over a three-day period in April after watching a character cut herself on an episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

On April 28, school staff noticed that seven students had minor cuts to their bodies. School officials say the children said they cut themselves after seeing it done on the show, which aired April 27.
