A mother and father in Colorado say their 10-year-old daughter committed suicide over video of a fight with an alleged bully.

"She was devastated when she found out that it had made it to Musical.ly", Latoshia Harris, Ashawnty's mother, told CNN affiliate KDVR.

The harassing just heightened, and Harris stated, "My little girl got back home two weeks after the fact and hanged herself in the storage room".

"My child was supposed to be protected at school and for me not to have no protection there it just makes me feel unsafe about my other children and the other children that are there", Ashawnty's mother said.

In 2010, nine teens in MA were charged for their involvement in what was described as a months-long bullying campaign that led to the suicide of 15-year-old Phoebe Prince.

No, I really wouldn't take anything for it. "I told them they better not do anything to that signature, I like it there", Jones said.

A 17-year-old NY boy killed himself last month by stepping in front of a train after his parents said he suffered years of bullying from fellow students that school officials did nothing about.

Matters came to a head late October, when Ashawnty, a fifth-grade student at Sunrise Elementary in Aurora, was involved in a fight after school.

The statement continued, "We were made aware of that video when a media outlet approached us with it".

Child therapist Sheryl Ziegler, who had no direct knowledge of Davis or the case, said cyberbullying is especially problematic for children her age.

Despite their heartbreak, Ashwanty's parents say they want their daughter's tragic story to be a warning about the grave threat of bullying, and chose the share the video of the fight with the news station.

"It's just devastating", her father said. Her parents say she is a victim of "bullycide", when a person died by suicide after being the subject of bullying. About half a million teens ages 13 to 18 were involved.

The district also explained that the video was not made during school hours.

The Cherry Creek School District issued a statement calling Ashawnty's death "a heartbreaking loss", and said officials learned of the video from reporters.

"The school did not receive any complaints from students or parents that the student was being bullied", Smith said.

Davis' parents said they don't believe the district did not enough to stop the bullying, KDVR said. "The safety and wellbeing of students is our highest priority and we strive every today to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning".
