Date:

Missouri – A shocking video is making the rounds on social media. It shows a student from Missouri hitting her 65-year-old teacher many times during a tense encounter in a hallway at Normandy High School. This incident took place on Wednesday last week.

The teacher ended up in the hospital but is likely to recover completely. The video has been watched nearly 17 million times on X. In the clip, other students can be heard screaming, but they just filmed the event instead of stepping in or seeking assistance.

Another video surfaced, showing the same student having a seizure shortly after the fight. Fellow students say the conflict started when the teacher tried to stop the girl from getting seizure medicine from her locker.

The teacher was hospitalized

The teacher’s partner, Greg Stanton, said that she had idea why she was attacked. “She’s banged up pretty bad,” Stanton stated in reference to his hospital visit. “She really couldn’t talk. She [doesn’t] understand why” she was attacked, he said. “She was crying. “Where were the police? Where were the (paraprofessionals)?”

Normandy Schools issued the following statement regarding the incident:

“The district is addressing an incident that occurred this morning involving a confrontation between a teacher and a student. The administration is taking this matter seriously and is fully cooperating with local law enforcement.

 Additionally, we have launched an internal investigation to gather all the necessary facts surrounding the incident, and appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings of these investigations. The safety and well-being of our students and staff are of the utmost importance to Normandy Schools Collaborative, and our primary focus is to provide a safe and nurturing space for students to learn and for teachers to educate.”

Authorities have said criminal charges will be sought against the student through the St. Louis County Juvenile Courts.

This is the second clip where the student is seen having a seizure.
