According to the New York Daily News, the footage first surfaced on Wednesday and the school district is investigating:
Shocking video of the fight, recorded by a bystander, shows the teen tormenter repeatedly beating his blind peer on the head.
Footage of the fight surfaced Wednesday and took place at Huntington Beach High School in Southern California during lunch, district officials told the Daily News.
The Huntington Beach Union High School District said officials are investigating and have begun interviewing students and witnesses.
“Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority,” it said in a statement to the News. “Huntington Beach High School has a very strong anti-bullying code of conduct and will not condone this type of behavior from any student.”
Here’s hoping that after the district investigates, the hero gets an award.
