11-year-old girl dies after she was brutally beaten up by classmates during brawl leaving mother devastated
Fifth-grader RaNiya Wright, known as Ny, succumbed to her injuries Wednesday morning after being allegedly brutally beaten in a case of classroom bullying on Monday
An 11-year-old girl who was wounded in a classroom brawl in an alleged bullying incident succumbed to her injuries despite being rushed to a hospital.
Two days after being airlifted from Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, South Carolina, following an altercation, fifth-grader RaNiya Wright, known as Ny, succumbed to her injuries Wednesday morning, Metro reports.
Devastated mother Ash Wright wrote on Facebook moments after her daughter's death: "As of 9:39, my baby girl has gained her wings justice4Ny."
While Wright has claimed Ny was beaten up by a bully, the local sheriff's office has refused to comment on the circumstances surrounding Ny's death pending investigation.
Wright was updating her Facebook in the hours leading up to her daughter's demise. "This is what bullying causes, stay woke PARENTS. I done peep all da shade && trust && believe I’m 10 toes behind MINES! just imagine you standing by yours, RIGHT," she wrote in one post.
"UPDATE! STILL UNRESPONSIVE at this time, keep the prayers coming for my sweet baby girl. JusticeForNy," another post read.
According to one commenter, Ny had been "jumped" by two students in her classroom in a "sickening" attack.
Speaking to Metro US, Angela Carr, who works with Ny’s mother, said, "I know I spoke to (Ash Wright) last night and she said no mother should ever have to go through the pain and anger she is feeling... When your child goes to school you expect them to be safe not get a phone call about your child being airlifted to the hospital."
Shalane Lowes, from Colleton County Sheriff’s Office, said: "The juvenile receiving care at MUSC (Medical University of South Carolina) in regards to the Forest Hills incident has passed. We are still unable to disclose any information regarding this incident due to this being an on-going investigation."
A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise money for Ny’s family.
