COLUMBUS, Ga. (WXIA) — A Georgia family’s attorney says a school contract worker is to blame for an injury that resulted in the amputation of a 13-year-old boy’s leg.

The boy’s mother, Lawanda Thomas, said the incident happened on September 12 at the Edgewood Student Services in Columbus.

Thomas said her son, Montravious, wanted to leave the classroom but allegedly was told that he could not. That’s when, she said, her son was physically assaulted by a school contract worker.

The family’s attorney, Renee Tucker, said that Montravious was picked up by the waist and slammed to the floor three times.

“He picked him up around his waist and body slammed him to the floor,” Tucker said. “We know he attempted to leave the class a couple more times, and he was picked up two more times around his waist and body slammed to the floor.”
