A teenager was left in a “pool of blood” after being savagely attacked by a pack of school bullies.
Boston Yarran was on his way home from Rockingham Senior High School in Perth when he was set upon by a group of three older students, 9News reported.
The 13-year-old thought he was “going to die” after the brutal assault, which was so vicious he was left dripping in blood and needed his head stapling back together.
The year eight student was attacked after he got off the bus on his way home from school.
It was reported that two of the bullies filmed the assault on their mobile phones and taunted him while he was being beaten.
Following the cruel act, Boston rushed to a nearby skate park for help and asked a friend to call an ambulance.
His school uniform, backpack and shoes were “soaked with blood”, which was also present on the footpath where the horror unfolded.
Boston’s distressed mother Jaycinta recalled the trauma the attack has inflicted on her son.
“There was blood everywhere when I came into the room, he was hysterical, dazed, in shock still, it was awful, absolutely awful,” she told 9News.
“He’s got headaches, he’s in pain, he woke up several times last night having bad dreams from the whole incident. It’s traumatising.
“I’m going to be picking him up more and making sure he’s close to me and safe.”
Boston, who has ADHD and a global developmental delay, is now too scared to catch the bus again.
The family have reported the incident to the police.
