TULSA, Okla. -- A fight at the union 6th and 7th Grade Center leaves one student with a broken nose and students captured it all on camera. But one parent is questioning if teachers were present as they claim they weren’t seen in the videos.

A Union mother opens her car door and heads to the bus stop.

“My son didn’t feel safe going to school," Kymberli Bressers said.

Bressers son Preston is in 7th grade and claims he witnessed a fight at the end of the school day.

“It’s just a lot to take in at one time," Union 7th grade student Preston Candelaria said.

The 12-year-old witnessed the fight that he says started with a prank.

“A thing they’re calling necking where they slap back of each other's neck as hard as they can," Candelaria said.

That was just the beginning. 2 Works for You obtained cell phone video of the fight.

“One kid thought this wasn’t fun anymore.," Candelaria said. “They were punching each other in a fight. I felt queasy and scared.”

The student left with a broken nose while Preston worried he’d be the targeted, too.

“I didn’t want to be the one he was going after next," Candelaria said.

Bressers went to the school to get answers. She wonders why she didn’t see any teachers in the videos.

“They have a plethora of personnel and teachers and somebody and someone should be stationed at various points while kids are on their way out to avoid things like this," Bressers said.

The school district sent 2 Works for You a statement.

“The altercation took place at one of the busiest times of the day. It started as horseplay and there were adequate supervision and a teacher presence at the time.”

“I feel like the parents should have been notified that something happened," Bressers said.

Now, the 7th grader hopes this will be the end of necking.

“I wholeheartedly disagree with it," Candelaria said.
