I can't believe I'm writing this, but apparently a "behavioral therapist" threw a student on the hard ground in a school multiple times, and this lead to the student getting his leg amputated.

Attorney Renee Tucker said the Muscogee County School District’s attorney showed the video to her and attorney Forest Johnson, though they declined to release the footage of the incident at Edgewood Student Services Center. The video shows 13-year-old Montravious Thomas being slammed to the ground five times and behavioral specialist Bryant Mosley straddling him with the child’s body in the prone position and his face turned, Johnson said.

“He’s on top on a terrazzo floor or concrete floor of some sort, but that’s what he’s thrown to,” said Johnson, who said three school officials witnessed the incident.

The story is tragic and bizarre, and as far as martial arts goes, it serves as a reminder that throws done on a hard surface can be extremely dangerous. A teenager is probably as resilient as it gets when it comes to roughhousing, and yet nevertheless there was this very tragic outcome.

A 13-year-old boy had to have his right leg amputated after a contractor at a Columbus, Georgia, school "body slammed" him repeatedly, an attorney for the boy's family said.

Man, no amount of money is worth a leg, but i hope he gets rich. How could such am educated man make such a poor judgement call? And the handling of the incident after the confrontation? No medical assistance provided to the kid? Jeeez.

I had to go to a school like that for half a year after several incidents. The kid probably had issues, but being armed with a dust pan did not warrant this response. You can't over power a 13 year old kid without throwing him? Seriously?
