A New Jersey teen took her own life after a video of students beating her up at school was posted to social media.
14-year-old Adriana Kuch took her own life on February 3rd, just two days after the video of her beating was posted online.
Four teen students were charged in connection with the attack on Adriana Kuch.
Triantafillos Parlapanides, the Superintendent of New Jersey’s Central Regional School District told CBS, “We always address every issue of bullying and on the day of the incident four students were suspended.”
Four New Jersey teenagers have been charged in connection with the attack of a 14-year-old girl who later took her own life after video of the incident was posted on social media.
One juvenile is charged with aggravated assault, two juveniles are charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and one juvenile is charged with harassment, Ocean County prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer told CBS News in an email.
Adriana Kuch, 14, was found dead in her Bayville home on February 3, two days after the disturbing video of the attack at Central Regional High School was posted online. The video showed girls throwing a drink at the teen, then kicking and dragging her down school hallways. They pushed Adriana into red lockers lining the school hallways and one of the girls in a pink shirt punched Kuch repeatedly.
Another girl outside of the video frame laughed as she recorded the scene. Two adults came in to break up the attack, with one adult pulling the teens apart. Adriana lay hurt and bruised on the hallway floor as the adult tried to help her up.
One of the girls said, “That’s what you get.”
Adriana’s father, Michael Kuch, told CBS if the police had been called right away, the savage teens wouldn’t have posted the video of the beating online.
“If they called the police and did an investigation, those girls would not have posted videos from school,” Kuch told CBS.
Michael Kuch also told CBS News that his daughter had bruises all over her body.
Mr. Kuch wants the entire school board gone and plans to take legal action.
