Kingstree, SC (WCBD) – A video of a fight between two female students at Kingstree High School that appears to show a school employee choke-hold one of the students until she passes out has come to light.
In the video, which we’re told was taken Monday, two girls can be seen throwing punches at each other as two men try to break it up. One of the men is seen with his arm around one student’s neck until she falls to the ground and someone off camera says “she’s out.”
The person who sent us the video says the student’s mother is upset the employee wasn’t disciplined for his actions.
The Williamsburg County School District released the following statement:
We have several programs in place to assist our students in resolving conflicts without physical contact. Our Rehabilitative Behavior Health Specialists, Intervention Specialists, (on-site) Mental Health Specialists and Guidance Counselors work closely with students to address numerous issues throughout the year to include Conflict Resolution.
The district is investigating this incident and working cooperatively with local authorities.
We will continue to follow this story and provide the latest details as they become available.
