A girl found hanging from a tree remained “critically ill” in hospital last night.
The teenager was found by a man walking his dog in a wooded area behind Armitage Bridge Cricket Club.
Rescuers including Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics gave the 15-year-old girl emergency resuscitation before she was taken to hospital.
She is now detained in the intensive care unit at Leeds General Infirmary.
It is thought the girl went to an area of the woods where local children had built a rope swing.
Police who are investigating the tragedy have ruled out any suspicious circumstances.
They are continuing to liaise with the girl’s family.
