Mother Shares Heartbreaking Video Of Her Bullied Son

On February 18, 2020,  an Australian mother named Yarraka Bayles shared an emotional video of her nine year old son crying after school. Her son, Quadan Bayles, was born with a form of dwarfism called Achondroplasia. The mother reportedly witnessed a bullying episode in which a classmate of Quadan was patting him on the head, and making references to his height. Yarraka said that she decided to share the video to raise awareness for bullying, and the effects it has on the victim. In the video, you can hear Quadan telling his mom to hand him a rope, because he wants to be dead. According to his mom, Quadan has tried to commit suicide several times in the past. With over 11 million views, the video caught the attention of local athletes and celebrities. One of them was professional rugby player Latrell Mitchell, who met with Quadan and took a picture with him. There was also a GoFundMe page created, and it has so far raised over $121,000.
