Alleged Bullying Hospitalizes 8th Grader

FOXBORO, Mass.

An eighth-grade student at Ahern Middle School has been hospitalized due to alleged bullying.

The female student was not hospitalized due to any violence, reports WHDH.com. Instead, her parents said the girl was so distressed from the alleged bullying that has been going on for nearly a year that she has been hospitalized for a week.

The two girls involved in the incident were formerly best friends; however, the pair had a falling out. The victim’s father said the alleged bully said something upsetting to his daughter on April 11 that caused the victim to be taken to the hospital.

The father said he wanted the alleged bully removed from the classes she shares with his daughter. Additionally, he said school officials have done nothing to stop the bullying. However, the superintendent of the school district said a plan has been in place since February to monitor both girls.
