This is the most disgusting thing you’ll see all day. A Bay Village, Ohio autistic teen thought he was being challenge by his school mates to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. The 14-year-old stood there shirtless, facing the camera, waiting for the ice cold water to hit him, but what poured out of the bucket instead was urine, feces, cigarette butts and spit.
The autistic teen’s parents say on Tuesday night, a group of classmates invited their son to one of their houses to do the challenge, while just wearing his underwear. “He didn’t want to and they said, ‘No, you have to. It’s a challenge.’ They had it all set up,” said the teen’s mother. “He was afraid to tell us what happened. He was embarrassed. He was afraid,” said the teen’s father.
According to reports, Bay Village Police are investigating the teens who allegedly pulled the cruel stunt. However, as it stands, no charges have been filed. School officials say no disciplinary action will be taken until after police have completed their investigation.
On Sept. 4, Bay Village Schools released a statement to students, parents, staff and community members:
Dear Bay Village students, parents, staff and community members:
Many of our students and staff members have been participating in fundraising for ALS through the Ice Bucket Challenge. It hurts us deeply to see such a wonderful effort twisted to deliberately cause someone pain.
We are supporting our Bay Village Police Department as they vigilantly work to complete their investigation in this case.
Smh. Kids can be so cruel. This is a brand new low. As a result of this incident, several community members have planned a peaceful vigil against bullying to show that hate is not tolerated in Bay Village. The event will take place off school grounds, in front of the Bay Village High School on Wolf Road on Friday, Sept. 5 at 6:15 p.m.
