'Tortured, terrorised and abused': Disabled Tenager tied down and given shocks

DISTURBING footage of a disabled teenager being tied down and given more than 30 electric shocks allegedly as part of school discipline has emerged from the US.



Andre McCollins was an 18-year-old student at the Judge Rotenberg Centre in Massachusetts - a school for severely disabled children - when staff allegedly first administered the shocks in October 2002.



The punishment came after a fight with another pupil and continued when he refused to take his jacket off.

The CCTV footage is part of a court case where Mr McCollins’s mother Cheryl is suing the school and three employees.

In tearful testimony, she told a US court she had not expected her son to be "tortured, terrorised and abused" while he was at the school.
