SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

There was a brutal beat down over a boy with dozens of witnesses at Southfield High School.  Now thousands are watching it on YouTube.  The two girls involved have been suspended for ten days.

Watch Andrea Isom's report to see the YouTube video.

We're told Laneisha Threatt's daughter was unconscious for a couple of minutes.  In an Instagram photo, teachers can be seen tending to her after the brawl, but it's what her mom says two boys did during it that has her blood boiling.

"It was one-on-one.  It's a mutual fight, but for a boy to jump in it, two girls and a boy fight, that's not right at all.  That's not even safe," Threatt remarked.

The video shows boys stomping on her daughter and pulling out her hair.

Mom wants the person who posted the video on YouTube to be punished.

"I was shocked, embarrassed, like who put this on here," she said.

Sadly, this is not the only beat down posted on YouTube said to be from Southfield High School.  All of the videos are less than a year old.

A spokesperson with the school said they have zero tolerance for violence and the video is very disappointing.  They're working to learn the identities of the young men in the video, but that could take some time.  They're also trying to figure out who taped the fight because students aren't allowed to be on their cell phones during school hours.  So it appears more students will be getting in trouble.
