Video shows 8yo beaten in school toilet days before suicide

Video has been released of the moment an eight-year-old US boy was beaten unconscious in a school bathroom, two days before he committed suicide.

The lawyers for Cornelia Reynolds, Gabriel 'Gabe' Taye's mother, obtained police records showing her son beaten unconscious in a school bathroom at Carson Elementary School in Ohio on January 24.

School officials allegedly initially told the boy's mother he only fainted.

The video has since been released by police and shows a boy punching and assaulting other students before Gabe walks in.

It shows him being attacked by the unidentified student before falling to the ground unconscious.

Multiple students gather around and step over Gabe as he lay on the ground.

That was until a group of students see him and go to get help more than seven minutes after the attack.

The school's assistant principal and nurse can then be seen carefully helping Gabe before more staff get involved.

According to CBS, school officials couldn't say what has since happened to the alleged attacker.
