Rumors often wreak havoc on people's lives. In most cases, rumors are just allegations with no substance or proof to verify a claim - hearsay. Unfortunately, a teacher was recently beaten after it was rumored that she'd had an affair with one of her student's fathers. Now, footage of the horrific physical altercation has gone viral.
On Wednesday, Mar. 25 footage of the vicious attack against a teacher named Marcella Villalpando Tovar has surfaced online. Apparently, the wife was told that her husband was having an affair with their son's teacher. So, she decided to take matters into her own hands. According to Mirror, the footage shows a woman identified as Laelia Paredes Flores storming into a classroom. Its quite obvious that she's livid, but what she did next was completely shocking.
The one-minute video shows Flores sitting on the teacher, choking her and punching her in the head. The helpless teacher attempts to shield herself from the relentless attack, but to no avail. The wife continues to show no mercy by hitting, kicking and punching the teacher in the stomach. She yells at the teacher demanding that she "defend her self," but the teacher just continues to shield herself, making no attempt to fight back. Most of the students just watched the teacher get attacked while others filmed the horrific incident. However, one student reportedly ran out of the room to find help. The 16-year-old student gave a brief statement recounting the shocking ordeal.
"The woman charged in and began shouting and screaming before punching our teacher to the floor," the student said. "That's when I ran to get help. But when other teachers came they just stood around watching. It was really terrible, terrible."The disheartening video ends with the wife storming out of the classroom with the teacher left lying on the floor. The footage has sparked outrage online as many viewers have condemned the attack, which was reportedly uploaded by a student. A spokesperson for the school has released a statement in reference to the vicious attack. The incident is reportedly being investigated. However, it is still unclear whether Flores will face charges or not.
"The woman claimed that our teacher was having an affair with one of the student's dads and the mother took exception. We are appalled that this attack happened in our school and that nothing was done to stop it, and we shall be carrying out a full investigation."'[Image via YouTube]
