(FOX NEWS) -- A Wisconsin 10-year-old girl with special needs was "brutally" bitten by another mentally disabled student while riding the school bus this week, leaving the girl in pain with severe bruising on her left arm, according to reports on Fox News.
Parents Lynn Waldron-Moehle and Chad Waldron claim another mentally disabled girl on the special-needs school bus gnawed into their daughter’s arm as she was constrained by a five-point-harness car seat and was unable to escape. The bus driver did not stop to intervene, they told Green Bay's WBAY-TV.
The couple said their daughter Lillian "Lilly" Waldron was sobbing inconsolably and clutching her arm when she got off the bus coming home from Langlade Elementary School in Green Bay.
Not initially realizing how badly her daughter was hurt, Waldron-Moehle brought Lilly home to take a bath and calm down. She said her daughter is developmentally delayed and, therefore, was unable to describe what had happened.
"She loves baths, and that's soothing to her. So, I brought her home, and I was getting her ready for the bath. I took her sweatshirt off, and that's when I noticed the major bruising on her upper arm," she said.
The parents said the school's principal -- who reviewed video surveillance from the bus ride -- described the scene as "gruesome and horrifying to look at." Waldron-Moehle said her daughter had no way to defend herself and no adult present willing to help her.
