Parents of Md. girl beaten on bus plan to sue school district

The parents of a Prince George's County elementary student who was beaten up on a school bus now say they plan to sue the school system.

The video of 9-year-old Saraia insisting that she did not want to fight has gone viral.

Despite at least a dozen verbal attempts to avoid a fight, another student hit Saraia repeatedly as the bus kept rolling along. The beating lasted several minutes.

Saraia's parents had a meeting with an administrator at their daughter's school, but they are frustrated because they want a bigger picture solution to the problem of violence on school buses.

They've reached out to the school superintendent and even the governor.

A spokeswoman for Prince George's County Schools told FOX 5 this type of behavior is not tolerated. One student has been suspended for the fight.
