Failed suicide and medical treatment

Question: My son tried to commit suicide–he had some difficult trials in high school, but is a good boy who was both religious (of his own doing) and a good son to us and good to people. He failed, but is in hospital under big machines to sustain his life and to give him recovery because he has most of his body burned (he tried to set himself on fire).

Do continue medical treatment? Is his action forgivable?
