The family of a 15-year-old girl sues her school after being thrown to the floor and beaten by a classmate just a few meters from her main building.
Savanna Blakkan, who was targeted after months of bullying, suffered a major concussion during the attack on Yucaipa High School, California, and is now traumatized by nightmares and suicidal thoughts.
Her attacker was suspended for two days because of her actions, but Miss Blakkan's lawyer said she should have been evicted.
It follows the suicide of a 13-year-old schoolgirl in the same area in 2017 after classmates called her ugly and bullied her because they had braces.
Sickening recordings show the moment when a 15-year-old schoolgirl is slammed face-to-face and is thrown to the floor by one of her classmates in the main building of the school. Her parents continue the school, Yucaipa High School, and say that their daughter Savanna Blakkan should have been safe on the school campus
Sickening footage filmed in May shows Miss Blakkan and her attacker, apparently in conversation, moments before the attack begins.
She is slapped in the face and thrown to the floor, where she is slapped in the face more than 10 times before another person pulls her attacker away.
A crowd gathered to watch and an assistant vice director and other teachers would have passed by before someone would intervene.
Afterwards she said it KTLA that her attacker grabbed me from my backpack before the attack and that she just started yelling at me & # 39 ;.
& # 39; She waved me three times and I ended up on the floor, and she waved at me ten more times and beat me worse. & # 39;

Her mother, Crystal Blakkan, said she had reported bullying to the school several times, but she & # 39; did not take it seriously & # 39 ;.
The parents challenge the Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District and say they expect their child to be safe at school.
It comes after 13-year-old schoolgirl Rosalie Avila, also from the area, took her own life when she was bullied.
She hung herself after writing a suicide letter to her parents who said: & # 39; Sorry mom and dad. Sorry mommy, you'll find me like that. & # 39;
