A Kentucky school district has fired a teacher after a video surfaced taht showed her dragging a 9-year-old boy with autism through the halls of a school. The district announced the teacher’s termination Monday, more than two months after the incident took place, WSAZ-TV reports. “The teacher was removed from the school and a formal investigation was conducted,” Superintendent Sherry Horsely said in a statement to WSAZ. Angel Nelson, the mother of the boy, told CNN on Monday that her son was removed from a classroom after he had an emotional meltdown. Video from the school’s cameras appears to show a woman dragging a young boy by the wrists, as he laid on his back and slid on his knees, through the school’s hallways. Nelson said the same day her son was dragged, she had X-rays taken that she said showed a possible left wrist fracture. Nelson said her son got frustrated after being told to keep working, and he wanted to take a break. “He was not hurting anyone,” she said.
