HYRUM, Utah (AP) _ A 14-year-old girl who had talked about suicide died in a hospital a day after hanging herself in a school bathroom, 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.''
