Mothers wake horrified by little 10 year old Amber's story recounted to Channel 9 this morning by her mother. Her Mum claims she has been left "broken" and traumatised after a student supposedly wrapped a skipping rope around her throat and hung her from a tree! It boggles the mind doesn't it? Amber is smaller than most children her age, having been born with a rare condition that has seen her in and out of hospital her whole life.
Mum Belinda said another student got the skipping rope, “grabbed Amber, put it over her neck and started wrapping and wrapping". Amber protested saying ‘no, no, no’ until she couldn't speak anymore,” “She said, ‘Mum all I could think of was, is if I’m dead how am I going to be able to be their friend?’”
Belinda says unbelievably, school staff didn’t contact her or provide medical attention to Amber after the incident.
