A Bronx high schooler who jumped to her death was relentlessly bullied at school for five months and sexually assaulted on the day of her death — and her school administrators repeatedly ignored her cries for help and never told her mom and dad about her torment, a lawsuit by her parents alleges.
School was still in session on Feb. 28, 2018, when Mya Vizcarrondo-Rios’ broken body was found on the ground 34 stories from the rooftop of the apartment building in which she lived.
The ninth-grader still had her backpack on.
Her father, Heriberto Rios, was home at the time, certain that his little girl was still in school.
Rios told the Daily News that his daughter was a happy girl who doted on her dad. He said she left for school that morning excited about a performance and teased him before she walked out the door.
