10-year-old Kentucky boy who killed himself was bullied, mother says





Seven Bridges, a 5th-grader who had to wear a colostomy bag due to a birth defect was found by his mother hanging in his closet Saturday, she said. CPR to revive him was not successful.


"My son took his life due to bullying, it has been probably ongoing for about seven months, horribly," the mother, Tami Charles, told reporters Wednesday. "He would have little things as he went through school, but nothing as bad as this year."



The boy's mom, Charles, said she made numerous complaints to her son's school about bullying. Jefferson County Public Schools confirmed the family had raised concerns about bullying before — but said they believed they had been resolved.
