"I mean what needs to happen? A child is going to end up dead next if they don't actually do something about it," says a North Tonawanda High School parent who did not want to be identified.

Video shows a fight that broke out during lunch between the two teens.

"Kids getting injured that's what we don't want to see as parents," the parent said.

According to the District, a fight broke out after the 14-year-old boy started throwing food at other students.

Cafeteria monitors quickly tried to break up the situation and eventually one student returned to his seat, but the district says the other student started throwing punches.  

The 14-year-old was taken to the hospital. The district says the teen has been released from the hospital. 

"Our kids go to school to school to be educated not bullied," the parent said.

The entire incident was caught on school surveillance camera.
North Tonawanda police did not want to go on camera but say this was not a case of bullying.

The 15-year-old has been suspended.

Police are investigating and no charges have been made at this point.
