Fears grow for beaten schoolgirl Kaylee Gain, 15, as grandma says she’s ‘devastated’ and that statement from family is coming ‘very soon,’ after youngster was left brain-damaged by bully who smashed her head into road

Fears are growing for the health of a schoolgirl left comatose by a bully who smashed her head into concrete – after her grandma said she was ‘devastated’ and that a statement is ‘imminent.’

Terry Nordstrom Thompson, whose granddaughter Kaylee Gain was filmed having her head smashed into a concrete road, wrote the disturbing post on Facebook Friday.  

Contacted by DailyMail.com for further details, Thompson – whose 15 year-old granddaughter was attacked in Spanish Lake, Missouri, on March 8 – said: ‘The family will give a statement very soon. That’s all I can say right now.’

She shared the worrying updates after blasting the ‘unforgiveable’ attack on her granddaughter by a school bully that left the teenager in ‘critical condition.

Kaylee’s grandma posted on Facebook on Friday night that she was ‘devastated.’ The distraught grandma shared, ‘Have you ever just said “I’m fine” when you weren’t because some people wouldn’t understand.’ Few updates have been shared on how Kaylee is doing with the latest news sparking fears she may not recover from the horrific attack, which has sparked global revulsion.

The emotional updates come after Thompson spoke out against her 15-year-old granddaughter’s attackers several days ago. ‘It unforgiveable what she endured and went through,’ the grandma said.

In a post sharing the GoFundMe page set up for Kaylee’s recovery, Thompson slammed the ‘assault,’ calling it ‘vicious.’

‘We love her so much and hoping and praying for a full recovery but the road is long,’ the post said. 

The charity page has raised $320,000 so far to go toward medical bills as the teen fights for her life to stay alive.

She suffered from a skull fracture and frontal lobe damage and was left in a critical condition with major brain bleeding and swelling, according to the GoFundMe.

The attack happened just after 2:30 pm last Friday near the school. 

Video of the incident circulated on social media showing another girl bashing the teen’s head into the concrete after throwing multiple punches and sending her careening to the ground.

Gain appeared to begin to have a seizure as groups of other teens brawled just feet away.

Police found the girl suffering from a serious head injury near the intersection of Norgate Drive and Claudine Drive, roughly a five-minute walk from the high school campus. She was taken to the hospital and remains in critical condition.

‘In minutes, this family’s life shattered when their only daughter was assaulted outside of a North County high school,’ the crowdfunding page states.

‘She was left alone on the ground to convulse before EMTs arrived on the scene. She was admitted to one of the local hospitals in Saint Louis with a skull fracture and frontal lobe damage.’

Gain’s ‘shocked and devastated’ parents have been staying by their daughter’s side ‘day and night’ since he was hospitalized and are ‘hoping to bring her back to the Kaylee they know and love.’

A 15-year-old girl was arrested Saturday and charged with assault. She was taken to the St. Louis County Family Court and remained in custody as of Sunday afternoon.

Attorney General Andrew Bailey has called on the ‘evil’ 15-year-old girl who beat Gain’s head into the concrete to be ‘tried as an adult.’

Bailey announced on X: ‘This evil and complete disregard for human life has no place in Missouri, or anywhere. I am praying for the victim.

‘The criminal should be charged and tried as an adult. If the victim dies, that offense should rise to a homicide.’

John O’Sullivan, Director of Communications with St. Louis County Courts, told KSDK it is too soon to determine if the suspect will be tried as an adult.

He says a court hearing is expected to be held in the next few weeks. 

After news of the altercation broke, the Hazelwood School District released a statement condemning violence within the community.

‘It is a tragedy anytime children are hurt,’ the statement read. ‘Bullying and fighting in the community is an issue for which we all need to take ownership and work towards a resolution for the sake of our children.

‘The Hazelwood School District offers our sincerest condolences to everyone involved and will offer additional emotional support from our support and crisis team to those in need.’

The statement urged community members to respect the families of those involved and ‘pledge to help work toward the betterment of our entire community.’

Missouri AG Andrew Bailey warned the sickening attack against high schooler Kaylee Gain was a result of ‘radical’ DEI policies and a soft-touch approach to justice

Missouri’s Attorney General said ‘radical’ diversity, equity and inclusion programs are to blame for the vicious school fight that left student Kaylee Gain with severe brain damage as he called for her attacker to be tried as an adult. 

Andrew Bailey warned the brutality was a result of an obsession with woke DEI policies and the soft-touch approach to justice under former St. Louis DA Kim Gardner and current Rep Cori Bush, a hardline progressive Democrat. 

He appeared on Fox News to discuss the horrifying attack on Gain at her St. Louis high school last Friday.  

It is not yet clear what started the fight, but Bailey accused Gain’s school of ‘promoting racial divisiveness’ and ‘pushing a radical social agenda’ at the expense of proper discipline.

‘These children grew up in St Louis. They have watched a Soros-backed prosecutor Kim Gardner who refused to prosecute criminal defendants,’ Bailey said.
