10-Year-Old Seven Bridges allegedly committed suicide because of the relentless bullying over his colostomy bag, according to reports.

His mother said she returned from the grocery store Saturday morning and found the fifth-grader had hanged himself in their Kentucky home, news station WHAS reports.

“I saw my son dead,” his mom, Tami Charles, told the news station. “That’s something in my head.”

Charles said Seven struggled with the bullies hand was teased because of a bowel condition.

According to reports, Seven was born with a medical condition that required him to undergo more than 26 surgeries and use a colostomy bag, his family said. Bullies reportedly often tormented him because of the smell from the condition.

Seven’s mom said the bullying became so severe that he planned to transfer schools next year.

“We would talk to him about having new friends and a new start,” Charles said. “He just had to get to the end of the year.”

The boy’s family believes the school could’ve done more to prevent bullying in class.

“We found that the school system had a lot of holes and a lot of inconsistencies with their policies about bullying,” Charles told WLKY. “They stood on the verbal message, the lip service of zero tolerance, but they did not deliver.”

A GoFundMe page was created to help raise money for the 10-year-old’s funeral.

“His death is an example of what can happen when we choose not to take the issue of bullying seriously,” the page said.

    Why wasn’t he home schooled? The poor child had over 25 surgeries that I’m sure his parents had to work and pay for that’s why! Buying clothes that camouflage his condition?! Ridiculous!! Bottom line is the school didn’t do enough to protect him! Blaming the parents?! You should be ashamed! Blame his classmates, teachers, and those that his parents entrusted him to every day for 5-6 hours!!

  2. This is very sad and disturbing. God rest his soul. STOP BULLYING!! As a grandparent of a ten y/o we have to be vigilant and keep the lines of communication open with our young ppl. Confront the bully, eventually they will back down.

    I’m not blaming the parents. I’m sure they are heart broken, but……..Stop talking to kids about the future when they are suffering now. Deal with the now. I bet he wasn’t himself when he came home. Why leave him alone. That’s the worst thing you can do with someone that’s depressed. They don’t just get over it. It doesn’t get better until the “thing” making them depressed is resolved. I know people that wear colonoscopy bags. Wear clothes a little loose so you can’t tell. It does take a bit to be hygienic, but it’s possible. There are support groups. Go back to the nurses and ask them to show you how to keep it clean and empty it during the school day. Seven should still be alive. Ridiculous.

  4. Why was he not home schooled? Was his parents stupid or something because my baby would have never had to endure that kind of crap, daily. What kind of parent would I be to just let my baby sit in it with no one, but let’s about it after you get home from a devastating day. BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT IT AND YOU ARE TAKING YOUR ASS BACK TOMORROW. WITH THEIR DUMB ASS. I AM LIVID!!!!!!!!!!!

    • It is sad however everyone can’t afford to home school then then if they don’t have money those bullies would have still teased him about his clothes anything. The school could have done more. His parents did what they could the school dropped the ball. I am sure they didn’t think he at that age would kill himself. Prayers for the family.

  5. So sad that this little boy saw no other way out except to take his own life.
    Bullying is OUT OF CONTROL.
    The fact that this young boy had to wear a colostomy bag due to a medical condition
    WAS NO JOKING matter.
    His classmates who teased him relentlessly SHOULD NOW BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

  6. Hate to hear this baby had to endure this and end this way. You have people who are born to be evil. From birth to death they don’t have compassion. From the beginning of time to the end of time. RIP Seven

  7. Another angel added in JESUS ‘s LOVING HANDS! He should not have been in the school with his sever conditions, this why I made the choice to withdrawal my child because of those evil kids that come from horrible homes they are hurt so they hurt others! GOD BLESS His Soul and BLESS His family
