Kentucky student with epilepsy bullied and stuffed in locker

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky teenager with epilepsy was stuffed in a locker while others stood by and posted the incident on social media. The victims mother is now speaking out, calling for an end to bullying. 

It was an overwhelming feeling of helplessness for Versailles native Nancy Loman. Her 15-year-old son, Logan Sanders, was excited to start high school this year. That all changed one day in late-September leading up to a Woodford County High School junior varsity football game. 

"It was one student who actually put him in the locker, but it was several students took video of the incident," Loman said.  

The video of Logan stuffed in the locker was sent out on SnapChat and posted to Instagram, but later deleted. 

It took school officials about 30 minuets to cut off the combination lock and free the freshman student. 

The Superintendent for Woodford County Public Schools released a statement to WDRB about the "bullying" investigation: 

"Once that was completed, the student who committed the offense was given strong consequences for his behavior." 

Loman knows there are parents who stay silent, even when their son or daughter is bullied on a daily basis. She wants to start working with the Woodford County Human Rights Commission.

While she calls her son's story a daily struggle, Loman feels she needs to help the victims that stay quiet. 

"There are kids that can't talk about it or that won't talk about it," she said. "Be their voice."

Loman went on to tell us the student at the center of this bullying case served a four-day suspension and was sent to an alternative school for another 30 days.
