St. Louis Teen Progresses in Recovery After Brutal Attack, Breathing on Own and in Stable Condition

St. Louis, Missouri – A St. Louis teenager who was viciously assaulted in a viral video has shown signs of improvement, now breathing on her own and in stable condition as of Friday.

The 16-year-old, identified as Kaylee, sustained a fractured skull from a brutal attack on March 8 outside Hazelwood East High School in Spanish Lake, just outside St. Louis, where her head was repeatedly slammed onto the pavement. This led to life-threatening brain swelling and bleeding.

In an update on her GoFundMe page, it was shared that Kaylee is now breathing independently, remains stable, and has been moved out of the ICU. The family expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support and prayers they have received during this difficult time.

A 15-year-old girl was arrested by the police the following day in connection with the assault and is facing assault charges in St. Louis County Family Court.

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey has launched an investigation into the Hazelwood School District following the attack. He expressed concerns over safety failures and the influence of radical programs within the district, emphasizing the need for accountability.

Bailey sent a letter to Hazelwood School District Superintendent Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart, expressing his dismay at the district’s disregard for Missouri law and prioritization of political narratives over student safety.

The incident has sparked discussions about the need for reform in the juvenile justice system and school safety measures. Authorities are working to address the underlying issues that contributed to the violent attack on Kaylee.

As the community grapples with the aftermath of the assault, the focus remains on seeking justice for Kaylee and ensuring that such incidents do not occur again in the future.
