5yr old girl sustains horrific injuries after being allegedly attacked in school

5 year old AvaLynn was nearly disfigured when she was allegedly attacked by another pupil at her Elementary school in Mississippi this week. The most bizarre thing about this story is that the school is maintaining that she was not attacked, rather she got the horrific injuries in an accident while playing on the playground. Makes no sense. This looks more like a vicious attack to me.

Her mother and other relatives have opened a Facebook page for the young girl to tell what happened to her and share photos of her injuries, while seeking for justice. Below is what they wrote on the Facebook page about the incident...
"On Tuesday, August 26, 2014, Lacey Harris was called go come pick up her daughter at Arlington Elementary School in Pascagoula, Mississippi, because AvaLynn had been injured in an accident. The sight Lacey found when she got to Ava's school was a parents' nightmare: her face swollen, cut, and bruised beyond recognition." Continue...
Lacey rushed Ava to the family pediatrician, who burst into tears upon seeing the Ava's battered visage. Fortunately, the doctor determined that it is unlikely that Ava would have any permanent physical damage. Mental and emotional damage is another story altogether.

AvaLynn informed Lacey that she was assaulted by another student: that she was kicked repeatedly in the face until she fell off of the slide on the school's playground. The school informed Lacey were no teachers present when the incident occurred, and because of that, no one could prove whether or not another student had harmed Ava.
After days of Lacey, friends, and family members reaching out to local news stations and to Facebook and other social media bodies, the school finally released a statement: AvaLynn was injured as the result of an accident, one that involved no other children. Although a police report was filed, Pascagoula Police Department states that they are not investigating the situation.
The school basically claims that Ava injured herself, as all the photos depicting her injuries will debunk. The local PD claims that there has been no criminal act, which the injury photos also disprove.
So now we've taken this to Facebook, asking everyone out there to please share this page, to please share AvaLynn's story. We need this to reach as many people as possible so that this little girl will not go without justice. Please share this with your friends, your relatives, and all your local news outlets. Please help us get the answers and the justice that our little angel deserves.
The Pascagoula School District issued the following statement about the incident:
"A student was injured while playing on the playground at Arlington Elementary School Tuesday afternoon. School officials responded to the situation. The parent was contacted and the student received medical treatment. No other children were involved in the incident. The Pascagoula School District remains committed to the safety of all its students."

The mother of the girl, Lacey Harris (pictured above with AvaLynn), wrote on Friday night:
“As much as my heart is broken for my daughter, I am also amazed by the outpouring of love and support from our family, friends, Oasis church family and our community. Thank you so much for your concern, kind words, prayers, thoughts, shares, and donation. We ask that you continue these kind gestures.”
How do you fall and receive such injuries? This school should be temporarily shut down pending investigation.

I saw this picture making the rounds on Twitter yesterday and was horrified at the extent of the injury! I think the school are calling it an accident to prevent being sued for negligence but I think this incidence calls for the installation of surveillance cameras in school playgrounds to prevent incidents like this and of all other sorts from happening.

Hi Linda
Please address this issue or pass it along to an influential Naija blogger who can.
Yesterday, in a famous marketing communications college in Jo'burg, a senior lecturer mentioned Nigerians as drug dealers. She was warning students after 3 of their colleagues were arrested a week earlier for drug possession in campus.
The allusion to Nigerians as drug dealers was uncalled for and we request you to make her apologise, particularly in light of the fact that the college plans to open a campus in Naija! Below are her contact details.

Justice for the girl ? Yes. The school should be threatened ? Yes. But shut down ? Lol Linda Nah. It's also possible for the school not to be able to place a true story to it because it didn't even happen in the classroom, it happened in a playground. Left to me, an adult did this.... Get well soom baby girl.

Hi Linda
Please deal with this issue or pass it to another influential Naija blogger who can.
Yesterday, (Friday, 29/8/14) in a famous advertising college in Jo'burg, a senior lecturer alluded to Nigerians as drug dealers as she warned the rest of the students against bringing drugs to school. This was after 3 of their colleagues were busted with drugs a week earlier in campus. Alluding to Nigerians as drug dealers was unfair and even racist *she's white* because the suspects didn't say Nigerians supplied them with the drugs. At least, she should apologise for another reason: the college plans to open a Naija campus. Below are her details.

Wow! Definitely attacked and punched (Looks like the outcome of a boxing match with temporary facial nerve palsy from the swelling). That is the only mechanism that will cause such injuries (apart from a road traffic accident). What nonsense trying to cover up the obvious by a school that clearly has no honesty whatsoever. Out them please!!!

The school should come up with a better explanation,how could a lit girl lik dat b in d playing all by a self during the sch hours without a single to witness or prevent her from falling?

Common, the school is not tellingthe truth. With the pixs I see she can't possibly hit all these part of her face at the same time in the playing in the school. The school has plenty explainations to give.

My God! What would a young child do to another young child for an attack like this to occur??? And where were the so called Teachers or Caretakers when this attack was occurring??? Ha! If this happened to my child, I will take down the Principal, Teachers and all the administrators of that school. Nonsense!!!

Let her church encourage the mother now to find forgiveness in Christ and to walk in love. It is crucial to let no root of bitterness or revenge take hold when you have been grieviously injured, and sometimes are still been hurt.
She must undrerstand that she cannot do this by sheer force of will, she'll have to spend time in prayer, casting this pain upon Christ and asking Him to strengthen her. And she should teach her daughter too to forgive her attacker. I repeat, she CANNOT do this on her own, her flesh will naturally want to lash out. This kind of attack is what happens when we yield ourselves to the wrong spirit and obey the evil thoughts it is suggesting to us.
Walking in love and forgiveness will serve her and her daughter better than the legal justice she's so desperately seeking. And this doesn't mean that Amal will have no justice, the bauty of it is- " I am the Lord, I will repay."

Anonymous said...

A five year old can talk and say what happened to her. What's the child saying herself? If it's a lie been told to her to say she fell, one day she'll forget herself n say the truth. Get a child psychologist to question her. Our kids are not safe in school even with fellow pupils some r witches m wizards in children form (yes am using this angle even as am educated) some people r not fit to be parents. The school needs to be thoroughly investigated. They rather maintain their image than seek the truth? Terrible world we live in

Don't believe she just had a fall joor. They is more to it.

Anonymous said...

Children do not lie. The police needs to speak to every child that was on that playground that day individually with their parents and child psychologist present. Otherwise she should make a case against the school and the police. This can happen to another child if they get away with it this time.

They should shut down that school. There is no how a fall can cause such injuries. Here face looks like it was heavily battered. Haba. They should just tell the child to point out who attacked her. That school is hiding something and the mother should not rest until she gets to the bottom of this.

Hello!
So sorry for the break.It was intentional to lose "The Crowd" I got through an unpleasant way and to appease the bitter hearsts of "Bloggers&Celebs" who got offended.As a True Christain I believe all have sinned and fall short of The Glory Of GOD.And I also believe that for a true forgiveness to take place an atonement and sacrifice have to be done to appease the offended so I indulged myself in self descipline and self punishment to correction.I hereby proceed by changing this blog from a professional blog to a personal blog i.e from business money making blog to none profit personal blog.I believe my effort and sacrifice of atonement will appease the offended and make them feel good,That's True Christainity pleasing others more than yourself and above that loving others as you love yourself,If you do you won't hurt others just as you won't hurt yourself.I hereby start afresh and wipe out all past posts.In conclusion if what you do make others to fall even if it is right or wrong just stop it.I hope this inspires someone out there.(This might be a temporal or permanent change it depends on God's Will).I Rather Lose "The Crowd" FAME&MONEY Than Lose HEAVEN.

Bible Reading-Therefore doth my father love me,because I lay down my life,that I might take it again.No man taketh it from me,but I lay it down of myself.I have power to lay it down,and I have power to take it again.This commandment have I recieved of My Father-John 10 vs 17-18.
