Baltimore city school officials are investigating a suspected cause of bullying after a girl threatened to commit suicide.
Mother Geneva Biggus said her 8-year-old daughter tried to jump out of a window at Gilmor Elementary School on April 20 following taunts and beatings from classmates.
Biggus said her daughter, Shaniya Boyd, who has cerebral palsy, told her that she wanted to get away after she was teased, knocked off her crutches and kicked in the head.
"Three people were fighting me -- two girls and one boy. That boy kicked me in my forehead for no reason, and then the other two was just hitting on me," Boyd told 11 News about her last day at the school.
She said the abuse had been going on for some time and that the school did little to stop it.
"They tried to separate them and put them in different classes, but it still happened in the hallway or cafeteria or outside when they had play time -- stuff like that. They still managed to get their hands on my child," Biggus said.
The three students have been suspended since the incident, school officials said.
