COLUMBUS, GEORGIA — A 13-year-old boy is facing life with only one leg following an altercation with a teacher at school.
The boy, identified as Montravious Thomas, was set to go under the knife on Tuesday after a month of treatment failed to save his right leg.
Thomas was enrolled in an alternative school program for kids with behavioral issues at the Edgewood Student Services Center in Columbus, Georgia, when the incident that led to the amputation occurred on September 12.
The boy was reportedly the only student in the class when he decided he wanted to call his mom to pick him up. However, behavioral specialist Bryant Mosley refused to let him go. The teacher then allegedly body-slammed the boy to the floor multiple times.
Lawyers for Thomas said the boy suffered a broken leg, permanent nerve damage, and a damaged knee cap, the Ledger-Enquirer reported.
The teacher then carried the boy to the school bus and sent him home without providing medical aid or telling his family.
Adding insult to injury, Thomas’s mother Lawanda lost her temp job because she was spending time at her son’s side in the hospital.
Lawyers for the Thomas family plan to file a lawsuit for an amount that’s yet to be determined.
Moseley has not been charged with any crime related to the incident. The school has agreed to release more than 50 documents and any available video footage to the boy’s legal team.
