A Russian teen died in a Moscow classroom after bullying took a dark turn. The incident was captured by surveillance cameras in the classroom (video below).
According to the Daily Mail, Sergei Casper, a 17-year-old student at a Moscow high school, was the victim of a cruel prank by a group of bullies in his class who regularly tormented him.
The prank involved the bullies wrapping Casper in plastic wrap, in order to restrict his movement, and putting him feet-first into a toilet. After pulling the prank, the bullies kept him wrapped in the plastic wrap and brought him back to the classroom.
After being returned to the classroom, Casper was unable to move his legs. At one point, he tried to walk, but lost his balance and fell towards the teacher’s desk. During the fall, he hit his throat on the desk.
Casper’s esophagus was crushed as a result of the fall. As he lay on the ground, unable to breathe, his classmates continued to taunt him and laugh at him.
The teacher was in the classroom at the time, but did nothing to prevent the incident or help Casper, according to Mirror.
Eventually, Casper’s classmates realized that he was seriously injured, but it was too late. Casper passed away shortly after.
Now, police are investigating the incident, and the 17-year-old’s grieving parents are demanding to know why the teacher did nothing to stop the bullying.
“They seemed to think it was hilarious, and then they decided to take their prize back to the classroom where although the teacher was sitting at her desk, she did absolutely nothing to help him,” Alex, a friend of Casper’s, told local media, according to Mirror. “He was a good guy, he never did anything bad to anyone and he was my friend. But the others just picked on him all the time.”
One student involved in the “prank” maintained the group of bullies were simply playing a joke and that it had unexpectedly gone wrong.
The school denies that they were aware of any bullying against Casper before the incident, but say that the students involved have been expelled.
Reports say that Casper, who was at one point a popular student at the school, was bullied because of his love for the arts and performing.
