Video: Disabled Teen Bullied Into Being A Human Stepping Stone
Fourteen-year-old Brett Corbett was left humiliated after he was filmed him lying down in freezing water as others stepped on him to avoid getting wet.
Corbett, who suffers from cerebral palsy, was pressured into lying down in the running water by his Glace Bay High School peers.
Others can be seen laughing and filming Corbett as he lay down in the freezing water in Nova Scotia, Canada.
The video, which was originally posted on Snapchat, has since been shared on Facebook by Brendan Jolie to shame those involved.
"Never in my LIFE have I ever been more disgusted. The young boy in this video is my friend's son, he has cerebral palsy," Jolie said.
"Parents; you failed this generation. The amount of teenagers that stood around and watched this happen, even took videos of it.
"I hope you watch this video, recognize your kid and feel the shame. To the little girl that stepped on him; you should be absolutely ashamed of yourself."
Corbett, who is a frequent target of bullies because of his stutter and disability, said the incident had started as a dare, until he was threatened by another student.
"At first, it started as a dare," Brett Corbett told CBC News.
"But then someone threatened to push me in the Burr-Bank and said 'Get on your gut,' and a girl walked on my back."
"I was freezing ... no one tried to help me," he told Global News.
"The girl literally walked on my back, she said, 'could you get back down please, I don't want to get wet.' I shouldn't have let her walk on my back."
Since the video has gone viral, Jolie has organised a 'Stand Up For Brett Corbett' rally to take a stand against bullying at Glace Bay High School on Tuesday..
"Not just for Brett but for every child that has ever been bullied. This has been an on going issue for YEARS that our education system and society has failed to address. Bring a poster, a sign and some enthusiasm and let's take a STAND!" Jolie said on Facebook.
"All Brett wants from this entire situation is for people to become aware of bullying and for it to stop."
The incident is now under police investigation.
