Pennsylvania father outraged after son, five, is 'attacked' by special needs fourth grader while 'teacher wasn't looking'

A Pennsylvania father is demanding answers after a fourth grade student 'threw' his 5-year-old son 'headfirst into a table' leaving him with a gash and missing teeth.

Stephen Callahan's video about the alleged attack went viral on TikTok last week as he slammed Keystone Elementary School for failing to monitor the child and refusing to share footage of the incident with him.

Callahan said his son Grayson was attacked by a student with special needs in the school cafeteria on May 16 while the student's teacher was 'not paying attention'.

Grayson was taken to the hospital with a deep gash on his forehead and missing teeth and is now 'too scared to go to school', according to his father.

He said: 'A teacher's aide who works with special needs students in the county was not paying attention, and not handling the child she was supposed to and a fourth-grade special needs student attacked my son.'

Callahan said the school called his wife to tell her their child had been involved in an accident.

He rushed to the school to find Grayson where he said teachers repeatedly told him 'it was an accident', but wouldn't give him any details.

They rushed the boy to hospital with a long cut to his forehead and missing teeth.

Later Callahan spoke to the school principal Mark Wilicki and demanded to know what had happened.

He said Wilicki told him a 'special needs student grabbed my son by the back and threw him headfirst into a table which caused all the damage to the face.'

The incident was caught by a surveillance camera, but Callahan said the school have refused to share the video with him, despite his doctors asking to see it.

Callahan shared an update on TikTok on Sunday saying: 'The situation keeps getting uglier and uglier.

'At the end of the day I need answers. There is no reason a fourth-grader should be around my son.'

Callahan is now pursuing legal action against the school, but made it clear that he does not think the child or the child's parents are to blame.

The family's lawyer David Langsam told Fox News Digital: 'It's probably the most disconcerting thing to take your children to a place where they're supposed to learn, where they're supposed to be safe and then get a call that something as horrible as this has happened to them.'

He added: 'While the physical injuries are bad, obviously, the emotional injuries, it’s going to take some time to really understand the extent of them, and they very well may dramatically trump what happened to him physically.'

The Bristol Township School District said they are investigating the incident.

They said: 'On Thursday, May 16, a Keystone Elementary Kindergarten student was injured when he was pushed in the cafeteria by a 4th grade student from a special education program run by the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (BCIU).

'We are apologetic to the student and family, and wish the child a speedy recovery. Our primary concern is the health and safety of all our students, and whenever a student is hurt in school, we are saddened.'
