THE MOTHER OF a child who suffered a brutal beating that left her unconscious at the side of the road dreads returning the teenager to the school where her attackers remain.
And Marcia Carrington, an active Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) member, said she also fears her own actions after hearing the account of how the schoolchildren stood on her daughter’s neck and kicked her in her head on Wednesday while she headed to the bus stop outside the Lester Vaughan School.
The beat down came to light after a video on social media showed the teenager fleeing her attackers and narrowly escaping being struck by a van along Cane Garden Road, St Thomas.
After the attack Carrington paid $500 in medical bills for X-rays and medication and is struggling to get $840 for a CAT scan. (AC)
