A Chinese schoolboy who took a video on his mobile phone of a schoolgirl getting a savage beating from five classmates later uploaded it on the internet because he thought "it was fun".
The schoolgirl Xiao Yan aged nine had been in the classroom after lessons to do some extra study when the five female classmates came inside and suddenly started to attack.
Instead of stopping them the other pupils in the classroom stood by watching and even applauded. At one point one of the boys is heard shouting "use the chair on her". After that one of the girls then grabs a chair and also uses that to hit their victim.
And despite the orgy of violence going on in front of them, nobody did anything to help her, and even the girl herself made no attempt to fight back.
When questioned as to why he did not think of helping, the boy Chen Kao, also 9, seemed surprised that it should even have been an issue, saying that he had simply uploaded the video because he thought it was interesting and others might also find it funny.
But many found it shocking and reported it to police who quickly tracked down the school where the film had been shot and started to question students.
The girl's distraught father Wang Feng, 43, said he had complained to the head at the Caoban Junior Middle School in Nanjing county in southeast China’s Fujian province several times about his daughter being attacked by classmates. He said that the headteacher had told him to speak to her class teacher, but that his daughter had begged him not do that because it would only make it worse. But the beatings had apparently continued anyway without his knowledge.
The bullies said they had decided to teach the girl a lesson after hearing that she had apparently been bad-mouthing them.
Police said because the girls who did the attack were under-aged, they would not be punished, but all five have been given a strong talking to by the police officers and the parents have also promised to discipline them. The girl's parents had also reportedly visited the home of the injured girl and apologised to her and her family in person.
The school meanwhile said it was taking no action against the girls who carried out the attack, but was planning to sanction the boy the uploaded the video online and bought the school into disrepute.
