A California mother is suing a charter school, alleging a bullying incident left her son with severe brain damage. The woman says school officials did nothing to stop it.
Surveillance footage shows the boy getting off the schools bus and being approached by a much larger group of boys, who punched him and allegedly put him in a choke hold.
A worker walked by at one point, but didn’t get involved…The boy allegedly lost consciousness twice. He was eventually helped inside, where staff members brought him to the main office, laid him down on the floor, and called his mother.
The mother said that when she arrived, no one had called 911. “My son is literally laying there still, in the middle of the office floor, completely black and blue,” she said.
According to the court documents complaint, the boy suffered permanent brain and spine damage, as well as post-traumatic sleep disorder.
The boy’s mother said she wants an apology, and that she can’t believe that the bully was never expelled.
