Back on January 11, Nadin Khoury of Upper Darby, Pa., which neighbors West Philadelphia, was bullied and tormented in horrific fashion at an apartment complex not far from Upper Darby High School which is where Khoury attended school. One of the savage attackers captured the entire episode on camera which showed the group of seven people dragging Khoury through snow, hoisting him up in a tree and finally hanging him by his coat off an iron fence.
Even though the attack took place in broad daylight, no one came to the boy’s aide or called 911 despite his screams which can be heard throughout the entire video.
Seven students at Upper Darby High School ranging from 13 to 17 years old were arrested earlier this week and charged with kidnapping, assault, unlawful restraint and recklessly endangering another person.
Today, Khoury and his family were guests on ABC’s “The View” to talk about the incident and the issue of bullying which is still very prevalent in schools all across the country. Khoury is an Eagles fan and he was surprised on the show by his favorite player, wide receiver DeSean Jackson along with guard Todd Herremans and center Jamaal Jackson Khoury had a stunned look before he broke into tears when he saw the Eagles players.
DeSean wore his No. 10 jersey onto the stage, but took it off, autographed it and gave it to Khoury. Jamaal brought on stage a huge basket filled with gifts and Herremans offered Khoury tickets to any Eagles game he wanted to attend this season.
DeSean told the young boy how proud of him he was and said that “anytime ever you need us, I got two linemen right here.”
