Boy dies after bullying incident at school
Brian from Montevista says he had endured bullying for most of his primary and high school years.

There has been angry reaction after a 13-year-old boy died, possibly as a result of injuries he sustained while fighting off school bullies in Ekurhuleni.

Despite interventions from family and a support group, it appears nothing was done by school authorities to stop the violent attacks.

An organisation called Families in Need had contacted the school on several occasions in an attempt to stop the bullying of the grade seven pupil.

Brian from Montevista shares how he had endured bullying for most of his primary and high school years.

He says the past events have resulted in his depression.

School bullying is rife out there and it's dangerous

Brian, caller

Today I struggle with depression and anger because of the things that happened . It has been a tough one and I feel for the kids that have been bullied.

Brian, caller

The type of person I have become, my life changed 10 years ago. The moment I got kids I decided then and there I am going to protect them, but by doing that I cannot be the father that hates everyone. ..I am more forgiving.
