A mother from San Antonio has posted graphic photos of her son after he was bullied and badly beaten at school. Valerie Ann Lozano said that the boy, who is in middle school, repeatedly asked for help from his coach before the fight went down.
Valerie Ann Lozano told KSAT that the attack happened when the eighth grade student was in “P.E. when the other student threatened to beat him up after school” and that her son “told the coach (a student) wants to fight me.”
The mother claimed that the Resnik Middle School coach told her son, “Don’t worry, I got you.”
Lozano’s son, however, was still attacked, and she posted the aftermath of the bloody fight on Facebook.
According to KENS5, some witnesses claim the fight was initiated by Lozano's son. The school district called the fight "mutual."
The Facebook post, which went viral as the mother requested, has since been taken down.
It said, “Thursday my son was being bullied at school during P.E he told the coach that the other student wanted to fight him all the coach said don’t worry I got you The Principal my son and I had a meeting the next morning the Coach was called up to the front office for the meeting and said he would be there and he never showed up I want something to be done about this because the coach knew my son was going to be in a fight he never did anything about it this is not right I also keep on calling Southwest ISD District to speak to them about what happen and what is going to be done about this and they never return my phone calls feel free to share I want this to go viral so something can be done plz share this post this was at Resnik middle school.”
The school responded with a statement which read, in part, “On Thursday, January 25, 2018 we had two students that were involved in an altercation in the bus loading area of Resnik Middle School. The altercation lasted about six seconds and was immediately intervened by one of our SWISD officers and a teacher. Both students received minor injuries, one was punched in the nose the other student was punched in the eye. Both received immediate medical treatment. Prior to Thursday, there had not been any incidents reported concerning either students. However this is an ongoing investigation and appropriate administrative action will be taken as needed.”
Lozano responded to that statement in another Facebook post, stating, “If you call possible having a broken nose and having Trouble breathing not wanting to eat or sleep having depression fearing for his life waking up in the middle of the night Screaming and scared MINOR.. THIS IS NOTHING MINOR.”
