If there was one time you’d think that a bullied student would be able to breathe easily, it is right before a live interview discussing his experiences as a victim of bullying:
Preston Deener, a sophomore at Brunswick High School in Maryland, was the victim of a bullying attack just as he was preparing for an on-camera interview with a local television station about his experience being bullied.
WHAG’s news team was readying a camera when three boys approached, one of whom began hitting 15-year-old Preston in the head and chased him across a busy street.
“The student came up to me and pushed me out of the way and said, ‘What are you recording?’” Preston said. “All of sudden, the student was chasing me and I needed help.”
“I was shocked,” WHAG reporter Katie Kyros said of the attack. “They didn’t even care that I was standing there and yelling at them.”
Preston’s mother, Cheryl Deener told News4 that her son has been bullied since the sixth grade. He has also been victim to cyberbullying on Twitter. Last week, Preston fought back for the first time after another boy tackled him in gym class. He was suspended for three days, but the attacking student was not.
