A 16-year-old from Elko, Nevada, has suffered grave injuries to his head at the hands of a bully on January 17th.
Apparently Neo Hobbs has suffered at the hands of this vile bully for several months and was scared to attend school anymore.
The child was reportedly rushed to hospital with severe injuries, where he ended up in a coma as a result of the brain trauma. The individual or individuals responsible for this grotesque act of violence although it appears the school are doing everything in its power to play the incident down
Neo’s family is naturally devastated. They insist that a bully who has plagued their son for months was behind the attack.
It’s tragic that child trying to receive an education in school is rushed to the hospital with brain injuries and goes into a coma from massive head trauma.
Meanwhile, the Elko School District, have confirmed that there had been an incident at Elko High School, the superintendent claimed that it was just a confrontation between two students. Although this doesn’t seem to add up.
However in relation to Neo’s injuries his doctors reckon that, “He had to have been hit with something. The severity of the injuries he sustained could not have resulted from a simple fall or fist fight. The poor child’s skull has been badly fractured and his brain is bruised and bleeding. To add to that, the force of the impact was so intense that his brain even shifted inside his skull.”
His heartbroken mother said: “You send them to school, and you shouldn’t have to worry about your kids going to school. Especially about something like this.”
Neo slowly recovered at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although it is a long road ahead it remains a waiting game to see what Neo can recall if and when he regains full brain function.
Speaking on the build-up to the incident, his distraught mother revealed that her son complained often about the ongoing bullying he had to endure at school.
She also mention how terrified he seemed to be of this particular student. “This boy was saying stuff about him, and I told Neo, ‘Just ignore it.’ He says, ‘I am, mom. The best I can.’”
A CAT scan revealed that Neo’s brain was bleeding and he was quickly flown to Salt Lake City for brain surgery. The child was in a coma up until January 27. Therefore it will be several months before Neo’s family can take him home, where he will require plenty rehabilitation.
“He has to have a lot of physical therapy. He has to learn how to walk, talk, brush his teeth and feed himself. He has to learn all that over again,” his mother explains.
Considering the nature of Neo’s injuries, his family is struggling to pay hospital bills to assist with the medical bills the family have set up a GoFundMe page which set up by Neo’s uncle, Andy Andersen.
