A Canadian mother of a 14-year-old boy with cerebral palsy is furious and upset after watching a viral video of his son to be bullied lying in a brook so that a girl could walk on him.
Terri McEachern, mother of Brett Corbett, said she was “heartbreaked and angry” that the students at Glace Bay High School in Nova Scotia, Canada, looked idiotically as her son was made into a human step bridge, according to The Chronicle Herald.
What’s more, McEachern believes that the girl watched the video braking at Brett saying he would be left so that she could stay dry, the newspaper reported.
“I watched the video and I know the girl said to Brett” Lay back down… I do not want to get wet, “she said, according to The Chronicle Herald.
A video of the event on November 6 was released on Facebook by a user named Brandon Jolie, who said his son is friends with Brett.
“Parents; You failed with this generation, “Jolie wrote in the caption of the video.” The amount of teenagers who watched this happened, also took videos of it. I hope you watch this video, recognize your child and feel the sin.
“To the little girl who rose upon him; you should be ashamed of yourself,” he added.
Michelle MacLeod, Communications Manager with the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board, wrote in a statement that a video review is underway, according to The Cape Breton Post.
“This is unacceptable and very discouraging behavior. This type of behavior will not be tolerated and is not one like the school and the education center is proud of,” she says.
At least one parent of a child accused of bullying Brett has said that he was “spoiled” by the video, according to CTV News. The father said he “shouted his eyes” because of his son’s “cowardly” actions, reported the outlet.
Brett’s mother also revealed that although she In the beginning, being prepared by a school leader that Brett sat in the creek as a “dare” she later discovered that he was threatened.
“He was told if he did not come in, he would be thrown in, pushed in and there was very screaming and comments were made, so he felt he had no choice, “she told the CBC.” The kids could only stand there and video and did not want to help. There is no compassion in it. “
