Pascagoula, Mississippi Playground Beating: AvaLynn, 5, At The Center Of Playground Beating Claims
Pascagoula, Mississippi playground beating is making headlines. A mother took to Facebook where she created a page for her little girl who suffered a horrible beating at school in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The mom claimed that AvaLynn was kicked by another student while on the playground. But both the Pascagoula Police Department and the Pascagoula School District have stated that the student fell and no one hit her.
The beating of 5-year-old girl on a school playground in Pascagoula, Mississippi has pushed her mother to launch a social media campaign. Lacey Harris took to Facebook on Friday, where she launched the Justice for Ava Lynn page.
On the social networking site, the mother posted numerous photos that showed how bad her daughter was injured on the playground.
Harris explained that AvaLynn returned from Arlington Elementary School in Pascagoula, Mississippi, on Tuesday with two black eyes, bruises, a bloody nose, swollen cheeks and possibly a damaged tooth.
The child explained that while on the playground, she received a cruel beating from another student who kicked her repeatedly on the head.
When the mom contacted the Pascagoula School District, she was told no other student was involved in the incident.
School officials explained that the kid fell from the slide and severely injured herself. The Pascagoula School District went on to claim that the children were unsupervised on the playground. So, they have no witnesses to the beating or the fall.
They explained that the child received medical attention after the incident and also announced that they have no plans to investigate the matter.
The mom also contacted the authorities, but they are not helping her either. Pascagoula Police Department Lt. Jim Roe issued a statement where he said that he spoke to the school’s superintendent and they have concluded that no beating took place and AvaLynn is the one who did this to herself.
After being turned away by the cops and the school, the Mississippi woman hired a lawyer and created the Facebook page.
AvaLynn has been getting an outpour of support and love from internet users all over the world.
Some have sent in poems, others pictures and many have donated to her Go Fund Me page.
The mother said she plans to use the money to cover her daughter’s medical bills and travel expenses.
Strangers in Pascagoula who have heard about the brutal beating have stopped the mom in the streets to offer a kind word, a prayer and even donation for a My Little Pony toy.
A few skeptical voices are saying that the Pascagoula, Mississippi playground beating may be a hoax. Those skeptics believe that AvaLynn did fall but the rest of the story was cooked up.
