A young girl was left fighting for her life after being dropped on her head by a boy at a school playground.
13-year-old Neeka Atkinson from Britain was at the Archbishop Sentamu Academy playground when she was approached by a boy who picked her up by her neck before dropping her head-first onto the concrete pavement.
According to the reports, the boy “walked away laughing” while the girl was crying in pain.
Following the attack, Neeka managed to get up and seek help at student services. Moments later, she suffered a fit and collapsed.
After the teen was rushed to the hospital, doctors confirmed she developed a large blood clot and suffered a brain bleed as a result of being dropped on her head.
As Neeka’s family confirmed, the girl was left paralyzed and with serious brain damage because of the ordeal.
While the Humberside Police arrested and interviewed the boy behind the attack, he was later released on bail.
“From what we know, he picked her up by her neck at first and then slammed her head first into the concrete, then walked away laughing,” Neeka’s sister, Alisha Atkinson, said.
“She began fitting and her eyes were rolling and she was being sick. She was rushed to hospital, they induced her into a coma and did a CT scan immediately. They found that she had a big blood clot on her brain and also a bleed on the brain – within minutes she was rushed to surgery which took four hours.
“They don’t have the facilities to keep her in Hull Royal, so she is waiting for a transfer to either Leeds or Sheffield. They said any further hospitals they try to send her to will be too far and she won’t make it.”
As of this writing, Neeka remains in a stable condition but is unable to walk, speak, or use the right side of her face.
“Investigations are continuing after a 13-year-old girl was injured in an incident at a Hull school on Friday 8th July,” a police spokesperson said after the attack.
“We received a call shortly after 4 pm reporting that the girl had suffered a serious injury, reportedly caused by a boy who is known to her, earlier that day whilst at school.
“She was taken to a local hospital, where she has been responding to treatment and currently remains in a stable condition. The matter is being investigated by detectives and a number of inquiries have already been carried out to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.”
The police added: “A teenage boy was arrested and interviewed in connection with the incident on Friday before being released on bail whilst our investigation continues.”
