8-year-old boy bullied at school days before killing himself

8-year-old boy bullied at school days before killing himself

The eight-year-old is then seen lying on the bathroom floor, while the bullies step over him, kick him and point at him in the heartbreaking clip released by officials yesterday.

Clearly things had gotten too much for the little boy to deal with, as just two days after the incident, he was found dead in his bedroom.

Cincinnati Public School officials released a disturbing surveillance video on Friday of an attack on an 8-year-old boy in a school bathroom by another student - an incident that took place two days before the boy took his life.

Surveillance video recorded at the school showed Gabriel Taye trying to shake hands with another child who pushed him against a wall and knocked him unconscious in January 24.

The family's attorney says the video is proof that Gabe was bullied at Carson Elementary School just two days before his death.

The 750-student school failed to disclose to Gabriel's mother the events that occurred that day, preventing her from her parental duty of adequately adhering to her child's state. Doctors concluded he likely had a stomach virus and sent him home.

"Maybe this had been going on for years, and she had no idea, so she couldn't help him", Branch told Fox 19. It is now believed that Gabriel hit his head when he fell, although it's unclear whether he struck it on the floor or the wall of the bathroom.

Hamilton County Coroner Lakshmi Sammarco's office has ruled Gabriel's death a suicide, but she said last week that she was reopening the investigation to re-examine the boy's injuries and whether there were contributing factors to his death.

The following day the child returned to school and when he returned home he locked himself in his room.

The school district said it released the video reviewed by the detective in "an effort to be completely transparent".

"She doesn't even want to go to school anymore, and she always liked school", Amy Henson said. But school officials made it public Friday to counter a detective's claim that the children who surrounded Gabriel's body were assaulting him, the Enquirer reported. The Hamilton County coroner said earlier that she is reopening the investigation into Gabriel's suicide. The detective said he saw "bullying" and behavior that "could even rise to the level of criminal assault", according to a copy of an email obtained by CNN. His life was not only stolen from him, but from those of us who expected to watch him grow up and enjoy life. As ABC News reports, immediately after he walks into the bathroom, Gabriel appears to shake hands with a fellow student before falling to the ground and remaining there, unmoving, for nearly eight minutes.

No charges have been filed, officials said.

Cincinnati Public Schools is reviewing with faculty and staff the procedures regarding adult supervision in the restrooms, and is committed to student safety, the district's statement said. "Him going to the nurse's station or him not wanting to go to school, that was his way of trying to communicate with me".

On Friday, the Cincinnati Public Schools released the video recorded January 24 outside a school bathroom.

"It is my obligation to make sure that this will never happen again", she said.

Gabriel's mother took him to the hospital later that evening after he vomited and complained of stomach pains.

"On Mother's Day, please remember Cornelia and Gabe and give the people you love an extra hug in Gabe's memory", Branch said.
