A teenage girl who had a falling out with some of the girls in school was lured to have sort of a “peace talk” at the park by her adversaries or else they would make her life more miserable in school. She agreed but soon found out it was just a ploy, a trap to put one over her again. Instead of talking peace and sorting their differences, two girls ganged up on her to beat her up, while the third girl filmed the “action” and later sent the video to her for more taunting. The incident did not only leave the poor bullying victim of scratches here and there, torn jeans, but worse, she got so traumatized by the ugly and violent incident that she overdosed.
Shocking video clip provided by the victim’s mother showed 13-year-old Ava Brookes being dragged along the ground by her hair while being punched several times in the head and face by the two brutal fellow teenage girls.
The third bully filmed the incident who taunted Ava by sending the video to her hours after her brutal attack in her schoolmates’ hands. The attack was so painful and traumatic for Ava that her mother Stacey said she took a deliberate overdose on September 22, Friday.
Stacey decided to upload the clip of her daughter’s attack to Facebook to shame the girl thugs and raise more awareness on the evil of bullying. She also shared that she is heartbroken that school and police officers were “reluctant to act” on the incident since the attackers are also minors.
The 30-second clip of the humiliating attack showing Ava being dragged by the two bullies by her hair across concrete paving and hitting her in the back of the head several times even as she screams in pain has been uploaded on social media over the weekend. She tried to fight back and defend herself, but being outnumbered she just could not stop the girls from their cruel intentions. The clip filmed in Pitmaston Park, Worcester has been viewed over 600,000 times and caused massive outrage in England.
West Mercia Police confirmed that Ava was treated in the hospital for minor injuries following the brutal attack on her on August 29.
Stacey could not understand how the others could have done what they have done to Ava considering that they are her schoolmates, they have once been friends and had what the mother would only describe as “silly schoolgirl spat”, and that the thugs have been to their home and even attended Ava’s birthday parties in the recent past.
The mother said the girls had been bullying her daughter over the 6 weeks holiday over social media. She said the bullying had a negative effect on her daughter’s moods and disposition, making her withdrawn and snappy, which “is not like her.”Teenager Overdoses After Being Bullied, Brutally Attacked By 3 Girls in School
Stacey felt even worse that her beautiful, intelligent daughter was forced to resort to intentionally taking an overdose to cope with the trauma the attack left her. The mother is just thankful that while Ava suffered with a bloody nose, grazed knees, ripped jeans and bruises, she still emerged fine from the overdose.
The mother is also disappointed with the response of the school, the police, the girls and their parents on the incident. She said: “The police have told us the video attack would be enough to get her charged with assault occasioning body harm, but they do not like criminalizing children.”
The heartbroken and frustrated mother added: “The police are reluctant to do a lot, and the school don’t act on anything outside the school gates. It seems that the zero tolerance policy stops there.”
