A first-grader who was bullied and beaten by a group of junior high school students in Qingyuan county, Zhenjiang reportedly received 9,000 RMB in compensation from the families of the four students involved.
According to reports, the four students all come from poor families who’d moved to the city for employment.
The incident made headlines after a video showing the four older kids ganging up on the younger child went viral on June 21. The older boys, all under the age of 14, chased the young boy around, slapped him and even threw lit cigarettes down his shirt.
