Footage shows two students savagely beating a third-grade girl on a Florida school bus while the bus driver and an aide reportedly did nothing.
The disturbing video shows two boys repeatedly hitting the 9-year-old girl as she sits helplessly on the bus.
“I got sent the video of my daughter getting attacked by an older kid,” the mother, who is pressing charges against Coconut Palm K-8 Academy in Homestead and criminal charges against the suspects, told Local News 10.

The mother, who wished to remain anonymous, said it’s not the first time her daughter has been the victim of bullying in the district.
“We’ve had issues before with my son and the kids on the bus, and also in the cafeteria and at dismissal,” the mother told the outlet. “I already drew the line, and I was also on phone with the district – I spoke with someone from the district – and the only thing they could advise me of was to continue to speak with the principal and pull up a bully report.”
Miami-Dade County Public Schools put out a statement Thursday that “the offender” has been arrested and “will be charged accordingly.”
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) is aware that several video clips involving students from Coconut Palm K-8 Academy are circulating on a social media platform, which promotes prohibited unsafe behavior,” the district said. “Miami-Dade Schools Police arrested the offender and they will be charged accordingly. Additionally, those involved will be disciplined according to the Code of Student Conduct. The safety and well-being of our students is of the utmost importance. This school district goes to great lengths to promote the values of restraint and respect as well as using social media responsibly. We ask that parents reinforce these principles at home.”
