Horror injuries of boy, 6, viciously beaten by bullies because he stood up to them when they picked on his pal

A SIX-year-old boy has been left with horrific injuries after standing up to a group of children who were bullying a friend.

Carter English was beaten with rocks and sticks leaving him with a broken arm, lacerations to his eyelid and eyeball, and bruising on his head.

His mother Dana said there is a possibility Carter may lose his left eye after having tree bark rubbed in it during the attack outside his home in Olympia, Washington state.

Carter says he was attacked after he confronted the group for bullying his friend.

“They were just bullying him, like beating him up. I just told them to stop… and then they did it to me,” he told Komonews.com.

Dana added:  “It’s been hell. I haven’t slept. I haven’t eaten. I can’t do anything. I can’t even leave his side.

“I really don’t know what I’m hoping for other than for people to know that this is not acceptable. Bullying is not okay. There’s no reason to bully someone ever.”

Police say they have identified a 5-year-old who they believe began the attack and are planning to get social services involved.

A case was presented to prosecutors but due to the age of everyone involved, the case will not result in charges being brought.

Friends have set up a GoFundMe account to help the family with medical expenses for Carter, who they say has autism.

Carter is described as a ‘very smart boy’

Karen Friebe, who set up the page, said: “He is a very smart boy and loves video games, playing with his friends and being with his family.

“What happened to him wasn’t okay and the police are not stopping until they catch the kids that did this to him. They beat him with sticks and rocks.”

Earlier this year a disabled boy, Michael Lozanao, was left covered in blood after being beaten up by bullies.

Mum Valerie Lozano accused her son’s school of not doing enough to keep him safe, saying a teacher had promised “don’t worry I got you” moments before the attack.
