13- Year Old Texas Teen On Life Support After Being Jumped Off Campus By 3 Girls!
#Family we would like to take this time to send our deepest thoughts and most sincerest prayers to a brave 13 year old girl; who is currently being hospitalized as she fights for her life.
According to #EssenceMagazine ; Attucks middle school student Kashala Francis was involved in an off campus fight last Thursday. Viral footage shoes Francis being jumped by a group of girls where she was struck in her head multiple times as students offered no assistance but instead laughed. Sources have indicated that Francis told her mother she was targeted by two girls after school, where an additional girl joined in kicking Francis in her head repeatedly. “I can see these girls kicking her in her head while other children are laughing at her“ states Francis mother Mamie Jackson to local news.
Francis returned home after the fight with a bruise on her face, assuring her family she was fine. It has been stated that on Saturday, Family members noticed a change in her overall behavior. Francis even became delusional at one point. She told her mother she was enduring a strenuous headache. “I drove over and I told her get up. I said ‘Get up, Kashala.’ She kept saying, ‘Mama, my head hurt,’ so she laid down,” states Jackson.
Unfortunately Francis was completely unconscious once first responders arrived and hasn’t opened her eyes since. Francis was taken to the #Texas children’s hospital where a previous unknown tumor was discovered. “We found out she has a large tumor in the back of her head, and she had fluid buildup in her brain,” states Jackson of the doctors findings.
It’s unknown whether the fight caused the fluid build up in Francis’s brain or if the fight made the tumor more visible. The entire ordeal is under investigation by the Houston district Police as well as school officials. Francis Family is currently collecting donations for medical expenses via Facebook. It has recently been announced that after multiple surgeries doctors have concluded there is nothing more they can do, Francis has been declared brain dead.
“All I know is my daughter was perfectly fine before this fight,” states Jackson with tears in her eyes. “And now I’m losing my baby.
