Dad Says COVID-19 Isolation Caused 12-Year-Old Son’s Suicide


Hayden Hunstable, 12, loved his family, friends and football, but one day in April 2020 he did the unthinkable. Hayden hanged himself in his room just days before his 13th birthday. His father, Brad, recently spoke to Inside Edition.

“COVID killed my son. I think Hayden would still be alive today if COVID had never happened,” the father said. “I had no idea he was struggling or depressed — he was such a happy kid and loved his friends and family.”
