The mother of a 12-year-old girl who was pulled from her wheelchair and beaten by bullies in a horrifying attack is speaking out about the abuse. 

Footage of two disturbing attacks on the 12-year-old in the bathroom and an elevator at Conway Middle School in Orlando show her being dragged around like a rag doll and shoved onto the cold tile floor in an attack filmed by fellow students. 

Speaking to DailyMail.com, her mother revealed that she had been bullied for weeks by the same girls. 

DailyMail.com has decided not to publish the disturbing footage.  

‘I’m sickened to see that video, I keep thinking about, what if she was paralyzed or never woke up?’ she said.

‘I’m mad and I’m disappointed, how can I drop my daughter off every day and not wonder what could happen? She’s defenseless, she can’t walk.’

‘I see her on her knees praying to God to make her ‘normal’.

The girl’s mother said she was furious and distraught that her daughter (left) was attacked and the footage posted on Instagram

Hall’s daughter suffers from a rare spinal condition had had six surgeries since she was five. She was told she would not live beyond aged 10.  

The horrifying video begins with the victim on her knees. One of the bullies grabs her head and pushes her onto the bathroom floor. 

Trying to get to her feet, the disabled girl tries to retaliate – but the much taller attacker grabs her by the arm and swings her around the room.

She again tries to fight back but is pushed against the wall while the attacker and girl filming laugh hysterically.

The girl is eventually able to stumble back into her wheelchair. 

Seemingly proud of her cruelness, the girl posting the footage added the caption ‘I will fight sb in da wheelchair’.

Hall said she was first alerted to the attack when another parent saw the video on Instagram and contacted her.

The girl’s father, who has custody on weekends, then contacted her to say a parent also told him and he was on his way to pick her up.

He went inside the school and explained what happened to school administrators, who had not contacted either of them. 

When Hall finally spoke to her daughter, she was with the girl who attacked her – who grabbed the phone and claimed they were only playing.

‘I told her my daughter was in a wheelchair for a reason and they couldn’t be playing like that. But I was misled,’ she explained.

She soon discovered other videos of sickening attacks on her daughter circulating online, along with threatening posts and messages.

When she asked her daughter about the attacks, she revealed that she’d been bullied for weeks. 

‘She said, “Mom, they do this to me all the time”. 

‘It hurts me because I didn’t know my daughter was going through this. She should feel safe and be protected and not afraid to tell people.’

Hall said she was angry the school did nothing about the bullying and failed to tell her of the attack before she saw it on social media.

‘I’m furious, I haven’t slept or eaten in days,’ she said.

‘It’s scary that she was enduring this and and no one at the school did anything about it. If they had at start this wouldn’t have happened.

‘Disabled kids should be looked after all day and they should have informed me from the start.

‘Both the school and the girls who did this are treating it like a joke. It’s not, and it’s not horseplay either – it’s bullying and assault.’

Principal Joshua Bing sent out a message to parents saying the school immediately opened an investigation.

‘The school administration is aware of a few students who were involved in several extremely disturbing altercations that took place on campus,’ he said.

It remains unclear if the girls involved have been disciplined. Conway Middle School did not respond to DailyMail.com’s request for comment. 

The girl suffers from chondrodysplasia punctata, a rare disorder. 

Her genetic defects include shorter femurs, and one of her legs is shorter than the other.

The condition can include skeletal abnormalities, distinctive facial features, intellectual disability, and respiratory problems.
