A 7 year old boy from Memphis, Tennesee was DRAGGED OFF THE BUS by an elementary school teacher. The incident occurred in the Shelby County school district.
The mother claims the boy, who has not been identified, was seriously injured by the teacher.
According to the local CBS affiliate, "the incident allegedly happened April 12, but the child's parent, Kimberly Hardin, said she didn't find out about the video until more than 24 hours later when another parent showed it to her. "They said he had bruises and a concussion. Because of the way he was dragged, he hit his head," said Hardin. "I feel bad. I didn't believe my child."
"Another parent of a child at the school contacted me Friday evening, and she said she had video of the teacher dragging my son off of the school bus," the boy's mother told local FOX13. " Her son recorded it."
Here is the video:
So far the teacher has not been fired. He has however, been placed on paid leave and an investigation is underway. Here's what the Shelby County school district had to say.
