EL PASO - It's a situation no parent wants to see, but it's been caught on tape - a YouTube video of two middle school students fist-fighting in a bathroom.
Ysleta Independent School District officials have confirmed this is video depicting a fight that occurred about a month ago at Parkland Middle School in the northeast.
The video was uploaded just days ago. With profanities flying, it appears the students are being encouraged by their peers. The video description claims the boy in white was cornered and forced to defend himself.
The district says it doesn't know who uploaded the video But whoever did says, "That's what happens when you pick with the wrong people," and even poses the question, "Who do you think won?"
Earlier this morning we forwarded a link to the Ysleta School District. A press officer admitted it was disturbing. We also asked to have a sit down interview with principal and instead we got this statement:
"A fight between two students occurred one month ago at Parkland Middle School, which has recently surfaced on YouTube. When security got there the boys had already stopped fighting. They were taken immediately to the nurse. The parents were immediately notified and disciplinary action was taken."
