A 10-year-old boy from Kentucky reportedly committed suicide after he was repeatedly tormented at school for wearing a colostomy bag.

Ten-year-old Seven Bridges hanged himself at his family’s home on Saturday while his Mom was out grocery shopping, WHAS-TV reported.

The boy’s mother, Tami Charles, said that she found him hanging inside a closet.

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

The boy was reportedly born with an unspecified bowel condition and endured 26 unsuccessful surgeries to fix the issue, reports say.

The illness resulted in the need to wear a colostomy bag.

A colostomy bag basically collects waste from a portion of the colon outside the body.

Its reported that Bullies targeted the boy over the smell from the bag. Bridges reportedly endured months of repeated bullying, his mom says.

“JCPS: You all failed my baby,” Charlies said of her son’s school district.

Charles said that the family “absolutely” plans to take legal action against Jefferson County Public Schools.

An investigation has been opened by the district, says reports.
