This is the moment two teenage sisters beat a classmate who is left lying unconscious in front of a crowd of cheering secondary school students after banging her head against a wall.
The fight was filmed at the Provincia de Salta High School in the city of Ciudad Evita in the eastern Argentine province of Buenos Aires and the footage was later shared on social media.
The video shows two girls fighting the much younger blonde classmate who was one of the school’s top-performing students as a large crowd of onlookers watch, and only a small number try to break it up.
At the end of the footage, the blonde teen is seen lying motionless on the ground as several classmates attempt to help her up in vain.
According to local media, the attack on 14-year-old Lara was carried out by two unnamed sisters aged 18 and 16 who are also both studying at the high school.
Lara’s mother Estelvina Diaz told local media: “My daughter has since fainted twice at home so we are afraid of leaving her alone. She is suffering from sudden dizzy spells.”
Diaz added: “We took her to the hospital yesterday because she had strong headaches and it took us four hours to calm her down with painkillers and oxygen.”
Reports said the teenage victim was kept at the Alberto Balestrini Hospital for one day as she hit her head against a wall during the brawl.
Her parents are concerned about Lara’s school performance in the wake of the fight, and fear for their daughter’s safety from possible further attacks.
Her dad Donaldo Paredes said: “We do not want her to lose her fantastic grades which have already helped her receive a scholarship. We also do not want our daughter being attacked like this, so we are afraid right now.”
According to local media, the parents have filed a criminal complaint as they claim the two sisters have attacked other students before.
The investigation is ongoing.
