THE Guardia Civil is investigating whether there is a background of bullying at a school where a pupil was stabbed by another yesterday. 

A student was seriously injured at the Camilo José Cela Secondary School in Campillos on Spain’s Costa del Sol when he was stabbed with a pair of scissors. 

Now police officers are trying to clarify the causes of the attack. In their search for a possible motive, they consider ‘bullying’ as the most likely underlying cause, but all hypotheses remain open.  

Both the school management and sources from the Education Delegation have confirmed that there are no previous files involving those involved in the event.  

The victim remains stable in the Intensive Care Unit of the Regional Hospital of Malaga. According to the Health Delegate, Carlos Bautista, there were “critical” moments and fears for the life of the wounded 15-year-old. Bautista congratulated the staff of the centre, who “saved his life” with their quick reaction.  

According to the delegate, the 061 medical staff requested assistance from the emergency helicopter, and the first intention was to take the injured person directly to the Regional Hospital. 

In the middle of the flight, transfusions were being performed to stabilise his condition, but it was deemed necessary to land at the nearer Antequera Hospital as his condition became critical.
