Why This Young Boy Jumped Out A Moving Bus Is Absolutely Tragic!


An 11-year-old Georgia boy is recovering from a concussion and a broken elbow after jumping from a school bus to escape bullies.

A Georgia father has called for accountability after his son injured himself jumping from a school bus to escape bullies. Dion Murphy says the incident was only the latest attack on his 11-year-old boy. Now, the father is calling his school district out for not acting sooner to protect his son.

Murphy said his son’s “desperate attempt” to escape happened last Wednesday when the bus was stopped at a turn lane and he leaped out of the bus’s right rear window onto a passing pickup truck before rolling onto the highway.

“One student jumped in his face, he was pushing him against the window, when he fell, the other student took his shoe and in a desperate attempt to escape it, he jumped out the window,” Murphy told FOX5 Atlanta.

The distraught father added, “I believe he was trying to escape the situation. At this moment, he felt back was up against the wall.”

Murphy spoke to officials about how the child was trying to escape the bullies on the bus when he jumped.

The victim of bullying was a student at Youth Middle School, which is located about thirty miles outside of Atlanta in Loganville. Now, Murphy wants school officials to explain why the bullying got so severe that the boy nearly jumped to his death from the school bus onto the busy highway.

The incident occurred near Youth Monroe Road along Highway 81. The victim was rushed to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, where he received treatment for his injuries. The boy’s arm was placed into a cast to heal.

Murphy has obtained several videos showing his son getting bullied on the bus throughout the school year. Now, he wants the school district to do something to protect his beloved boy and other victims of bullying.

Murphy told FOX5 Atlanta:

“I recently saw a tape that a girl was hitting on him, and there’s another tape of him being dragged down the aisle. There are more tapes, and that’s why I’m so upset because the school neglected the bullying act and did not do anything about it. They took it as horse-play, but my son could have lost his life.”

Murphy’s son has since been taken out of the Youth Middle School, where he was bullied relentlessly. Although the father met with school leaders in March to speak about his son’s problem with bullying, the school did not take decisive action. Now Murphy’s boy is injured.

“This generation’s kids are even killing themselves because they’re being bullied,” he said. “It broke my heart because this is something that shouldn’t have ever happened, way before this matter happened.”

A Walton County Schools rep said, “Following a bus incident on May 5, a Walton County School District student sustained minor, non-life-threatening injuries. The other students and driver on the bus were not injured. School and district officials are aware of the bullying allegations made in connection with this event. The Walton County School District does not tolerate bullying and harassment of any kind. The incident is being thoroughly investigated by school officials, and any disciplinary issues that may arise will be handled appropriately at the school level.”
