These shocking images show a little girl who was reportedly kicked in the face while in a playground at her local school.
Lucy Harris, the mother of the little girl who has only been identified as Eva, posted the images of her child to Facebook after the alleged attack at a primary school in Mississippi.
The little girl came home from school and told her mother she was kicked in the face by another student until she fell off a slide in the playground.
She sustained two black eyes, a swollen mouth and a bloody nose.
While the Facebook page claims improper supervision is one of the reasons behind the incident, officials acting in the school’s district said this was not the case.
In a statement, the school said no other students were involved in the incident and it remains committed to the safety of all its pupils.
Police have filed a report but said no criminal activity occurred and they are not taking it any further.
Lucy Harris has now set up a Facebook page to raise funds for the little girl’s medical bills – it has already raised more than $10,000.
