Horrifying video shows the moment a five-year-old Texas girl was bullied by two older kids during a 45-minute bus ride home.
In the video, the little girl is seen buckled in her seat as an older girl wearing pink hits her multiple times.
The little tries to fight back but the girl grabs her right arm and holds her down in the seat while a boy slaps the five-year-old in the face from behind.
Once the older girl is done assaulting the child, she moves back to her seat, making way for the older boy to sit next to the victim.

While the boy is slapping the little girl, she is heard yelling: ‘Bus driver! Bus driver!’
But the video appears to show that the bus driver never stopped to check on the victim. Instead, he continued to drive and the older children continued their assault.
At one point, the boy is seen putting the little girl in a headlock before letting the crying child go.
According to CBS, the attack occurred in November 2019 and lasted for at least 12 minutes until the child was picked up by her grandmother at the bus stop.
‘I lost my mind. I couldn’t believe what I saw. I couldn’t believe that there was an adult there that could have stopped it,’ the victim’s mother, Audrey Billings, told the station.
The child was on her way home from a Montessori Dallas charter school when the incident occurred. The ages of the bullies have not been released but they are believed to have attended Sam Houston Elementary in Dallas.

Billings has since demanded that the bus driver be fired.
‘He heard cries of help and he chooses to do nothing and it could have been stopped within the first two minutes of the attack,’ Billings said, adding that she thinks ‘the bus driver needs to be removed’.
‘If he didn’t protect my child, is he going to protect anyone else’s?’ she said.
She said her daughter no longer takes the bus.
According to a statement from the Dallas School District, the driver was switched to another route.
‘Dallas ISD is aware of the incident and immediately took action to permanently move the bus driver to another route, following the concern.
‘Additionally, students have been disciplined per the Student Code of Conduct. As always, student safety is our top priority, and we remain committed to ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of all students,’ the district said in a statement.
