Bullied Penn. boy gets surprise on 'The View'

February 3, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A Pennsylvania boy, beat up by several classmates, appeared this morning on ABC's morning show "The View."

One of the accused students videotaped the attack on his cell phone. The video was as shocking as it was shameful. It shows 13-year-old Nadin Khoury being beat up, dragged through the snow, put up in a tree and then hung from a fence post.

Thursday on "The View," Khoury says he was bullied because of his size and because his mother is African-American and speaks with an accent.

"I was scared for my life," said Khoury. "I thought the gate was going to poke my body. I thought I was going to hurt my neck or something."

During the show, Khoury got the surprise of a lifetime. Three players from his favorite football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, came on after his interview.

They praised him for his bravery, and former Cal Bears wideout player Dejean Jackson literally took the jersey off his back, signed it, and gave it to Khoury.
