A New Jersey teenage girl was beaten by a group of schoolmates while walking in the hallway, later committed suicide.

Student Attacked in Hallway

Four students have been charged, and a school district superintendent has resigned, after a recorded attack against a 14-year-old New Jersey student in the hallway of her school spread on social media.

The assault was recorded and shared on social media on Feb. 1, which intensified the harassment until the 14-year-old girl took her own life two days later.

Ocean County prosecutors reportedly told Michael Kuch, father of 14-year-old Adriana Olivia Kuch, that at least three of the girls involved are facing criminal charges for the February 1 attack on his daughter at Central Regional High School in Berkeley Township, according to NBC 4.

Adriana’s father, Michael Kuch said in Facebook posts and to NBC New York that several students attacked his daughter while she was walking with her boyfriend in the hallway.

He wrote on Facebook that a video of the fight was posted online and that Adriana, a freshman, had been tagged in it. He said he believes it was posted to “make fun of her online.”

Kuch has since deleted his Facebook account.

Video of School Attack

According to NJ.com, the less than one minute video showed Adriana Kuch walking down the hallway when a female student repeatedly hit her in the face with a water bottle.

After she fell to the floor, the female student continued pulling her hair and punching her head. At least two students could be heard off-camera cheering on the attack.

Charges Filed Against Attackers

A new charge was filed this week against one of the four students involved in the New Jersey school hallway attack on 14-year-old Adriana Kuch, who died by suicide days later.

The student, who was previously charged with harassment in connection with the attack, has now been charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer said in a statement Thursday.

Two of the attackers were also charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, Billhimer previously said. Another was charged with aggravated assault.

The names of the minors have not been released.

School officials laid out an action plan to combat bullying.
