A 10-year-old New York school student was reportedly so scared of his bully that he pleaded with his family to let him stay home before he killed himself.

Gianlukas “Lukas” Illescas, a student at the Hillcrest Elementary School in Peekskill, New York, was allegedly bullied for months while district officials “didn’t have time” to address the issue, his dad, Christian Illescas, claimed during an emotional school boarding meeting on Tuesday.

Illescas said he asked district administrators and social workers for help multiple times because his son was scared to go to school for the last six months, according to a report by News12 Westchester.

The child’s family said Lukas was bullied by one particular student at school for months, and the school did nothing.

The 10-year-old boy reportedly took his own life on May 25.

“Look! Look!” Illescas yelled at the board members during the school board meeting. “You didn’t have time? Five minutes. I don’t know how you can sleep. I don’t know how!”

A GoFundMe account set up for the family includes the following statement:

Please let us show a unified front to protect our children from senseless neglect from school administration, and harsh bullying. Our children deserve to feel safe and heard at school!!

Bullying is responsible for the death of a 10-year-old child! Lukas was robbed of his future. He will never get to graduate with his friends, make memories alongside his family, and have a life full of choices and adventure! His family and friends are heartbroken and beyond devastated.
