This is the moment a teen bullying victim and her mother are violently attacked by her bully’s family after reporting the school torment to the authorities.

The shocking incident occurred outside a nursery school in the Esteban Echeverria partido, in the province of Buenos Aires in eastern Argentina. 

Local media report a 14-year-old girl, who has not been named but had reported a classmate to the authorities for harassing and bullying her, had been taking her younger brother to the nursery school along with her mother.

However, the other teen girl was apparently waiting for her with her own family next to the nursery and was reportedly looking for revenge because the bullying victim had reported her to the authorities.

The alleged bully and her family reportedly attacked the 14-year-old girl and Romina, the mother of the victim, said to local media: “It was like a war. There were five against a 14-year-old-girl. That is not normal. The father was saying all the time, beat her, break her face.”

In the video, several women can be seen fighting in front of a crowd, pulling each other’s hair and wildly swinging at each other.

Romina criticised the other girl’s father, saying he was encouraging his daughter to fight.

Reports state other mothers who were at the entrance to the nursery school spotted the fight and split it up.

Romina explained that her daughter: “Does not want to go back to school until the situation is better. She is scared. What happened is a shame. Everybody saw the fight.”

The authorities at the El Jaguel school the girls attend met with both families in order to talk about the situation along with a team of psychologists. 

Romina said: “I hope the other family think about it. It cannot be solved by punching. We are adults. Adults should not promote kids to beat each other. It looked like a cock fight”.

She said that she had reported the case to the police.
