Taveion Baucom, 9, who was shoved into a wall during a class at Pershing Elementary, will be helped by Muskogee’s Bedouin Shriners, who are getting him an appointment at one of the Shrine hospitals, possibly in Shreveport, Shriners reported.

Baucom received a concussion and a fractured vertebra, according to his parents, when another student shoved him into a wall.

As he called his mother and complained about how his head felt like it was going to explode and it hurt to walk, school officials kept his mother from picking him up and instead banned her from school property, according to documents acquired by

According to a representative of the Shriners, the boy’s injuries are severe enough that the specialized care he needs isn’t available in Houston, so they’re hoping to get him to a specialist in Shreveport, La.

The schools said they cannot confirm or deny banning the boy’s mother, but documents show she was told not to return under threat of prosecution for criminal trespassing.
