Latoshia Harris, the girl's mother, said she endured more bullying after the video surfaced, and it was too much for her daughter to handle. Her mother claims her daughter was confronting a bully.

The video shows Ashawnty and another girl fighting while a group of kids watched.

Ashawnty's parents said their daughter was devastated after she found out the video was posted to social media, and took her own life as a result of the bullying that ensued.

Ashawnty Davis was admitted to Children's Hospital Colorado after she hanged herself in a closet in her house.

The girl's family believes she is a victim of "bullycide", a term used after someone takes his or her own life because of bullying. "She was just a child of joy and she brought joy to everyone". She also advised parents to check their children's social media accounts regularly to see what they are doing online.

"She's always been a happy girl, and then my daughter comes home two weeks later and hangs herself in the closet", Harris said.

Ziegler said it's hard for parents to tell when children this young are suicidal, but that changes in behavior like not eating or sleeping well, having stomachaches every day, and not wanting to go to school can signal a bullying problem. But something changed when she got into a fight at her elementary school.

"We have to stop it, and we have to stop it within our kids", Davis told KDVR.

Harris said, "I saw my daughter was scared. And I just want mothers to listen".

The Cherry Creek School District called Davis' death a "heartbreaking loss" in a statement, according to KDVR.

'Mental health supports will be made available for any students who need help processing the loss. The safety and well-being of students is our highest priority, and we strive every day to ensure schools are safe, welcoming and supportive places that support learning.

But they said they hope the video can raise awareness and help other children who suffer from bullying.

In a statement issued to the station, the Cherry Creek School District said that it does not tolerate bullying in its schools, and has a "comprehensive bullying prevention program" in place.

"I could have taken her out of the school". The district turned the video over to police, and school officials spoke with the students and their parents about the incident.
