10-year-old boy commits suicide after health criticism in school

It was a moment of sorrow and sadness after a 10-year-old boy Seven Bridges, allegedly committed suicide after he was criticised at school for wearing a colostomy bag.
Bridges, from Kentucky, hanged himself at his family’s home on Saturday while
his mother was out on grocery shopping, WHAS-TV reported.

The child’s mother, Tami Charles, said she found him hanging inside a closet.

“I saw my son dead. That’s something in my head,” Tami Charles told the station.

Bridges was born with an unspecified bowel condition and endured 26 unsuccessful surgeries to fix the issue, WDRB-TV reported.

The ailment resulted in the need to wear a colostomy bag. A colostomy bag collects waste from a portion of the colon outside the body, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Bullies reportedly targeted the child over the smell from the bag. Bridges endured months of repeated bullying, his mom told the station.

“JCPS: You all failed my baby,” Charlies said of her son’s school district.

Charles told the station that the family “absolutely” plans to take legal action against Jefferson County Public Schools. The district has opened an investigation, but couldn’t comment on pending litigation.
