体育明星支持威尔士男孩, 11, 谁失去了从恶霸中逃脱的手指

包括拳击手安东尼·约书亚在内的体育明星向一名 11 岁的男孩发送了支持信息,该男孩在试图逃离校园恶霸时失去了一根手指.

拉希姆·贝利, from Abertillery in south 威尔士, was attacked by a group of children on Tuesday, according to his mother, Shantal.

PA Media reported that the boy tried to flee but got a finger on his right hand caught while trying to climb a fence, and later it had to be amputated.

She said he has faced “racial and physical abuse” since starting secondary school in September.

Shantal said: “While he was climbing over, he had a ring on, and his ring attached to the fence and it ripped but also broke his finger.

“Basically, he was running away because he was so tired of being picked on every day.”

The family have received support in the days since the incident, with donations to a GoFundMe page reaching more than £85,000 and sport stars contacting Raheem to offer their backing.

They include footballers such as England international Jadon Sancho, former Wales captain Ashley Williams and retired defender turned pundit Gary Neville.

US basketball player Gerald Green, who had a successful career with nine fingers had been in touch to set up a call and speak to Raheem directly, Shantal said.

接手四个月后, the education secretary Nadhim Zahawi was asked about the case and said it was “sickening”. He told Sky News he had been bullied at school and was committed to “stamping it out”. He recalled being thrown into a pond by bullies after moving to the UK from Iraq as a child.

Speaking to PA Media on Sunday, Shantal said: “Here’s so many people just in different places that have been so generous, and I did not expect what has happened so I am truly, truly grateful for it.”

She said that he had been in “utter agony”, 添加: “The whole time [他是] telling me, ‘I’m sorry, 抱歉, Mummy. I just couldn’t, I couldn’t stay there, like why does no one like me?“我什至从未觉得自己是嬉皮士

However the support he was getting had put a smile on his face, the 28-year-old said.

“我真的, truly, truly grateful and if it can do anything by raising awareness for racism, bullies, whatever.”

A Welsh government spokesperson said: “We condemn bullying and racial harassment in any form and expect allegations and incidents of bullying and racism to be fully investigated by schools, with appropriate action taken to address the matter and prevent further instances from happening.”

The boy’s school, Abertillery learning community, had told Wales Online: “We are working closely with Gwent police and the local authority to establish the full details of the incident. The wellbeing and safety of our pupils and staff remains of paramount importance.”

A Gwent police spokesperson said it had received reports of an incident.

“A multi-agency meeting has taken place and we’re working with the school as part of our inquiries,” he told Wales Online.
