A desperate mother shared the disturbing video of her 9-year old son. 9-year old boy crying and asking for a rope to kill himself after he was bullied at his school because of dwarfism.
Yarraka Bayles from Brisbane recorded the video when she picked up her son named Quaden from school and he was crying because of bullying. She shared the video on her Facebook account.
Quaden was suffering from dwarfism called achondroplasia. Achondroplasia is a disorder of bone growth that prevents the changing of cartilage (particularly in the long bones of the arms and legs) to the bone.
In the video, he was crying and said: “Give me a rope, I want to kill myself. I just want to stab myself in the heart. I want some-one to kill me.”
Ms. Bayles shared the video on social media because she wanted to raised awareness about the impact of bullying.
She said: “I just picked my son up from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal. I want people to know this is the effect bullying has. This is what bullying does.
So can you please educate your children, your families, your friends because all it takes is one more instance and you wonder why kids are killing themselves. This is the impact bullying has a nine-year-old kid who just wants to go to school, get an education and have fun but every single freaking day something happens.
Another episode another bullying, another taunt, another name-calling.”
