Teenage girl fights on video

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Forget sweet 16. These girls in Queens are brawling like they're in a pay-per-view championship fight. A group of high school girls pounced on some middle school girls, and the younger girls fought for their lives. Samatha Gonzalez, 14, an honor student, survived with a fractured nose, two black eyes, and bruises all over her body.

"I was scared maybe one of those kids had a gun or knife and they would have killed us," Samatha said.

The trend has become so sick and disturbing that one teen even forced her 7-year-old sister and another girl to fight.

Clinical psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere said the emotional scars can outlast the physical ones for victims and that it's a rush for the attackers.

Videos like these are some of the most popular posted anywhere, some drawing hundreds of thousands of views. Girl fight fans and participants even have their own Facebook page where they critique the moves.

But when it's your face that gets messed up there's nothing entertaining about it.

One video shows Christina Campos, 14, on the ground while another girl pulls her hair and stomps her. She was also bitten on her arm and had to get stitches.

"When she kicked me in my eye, I didn't notice I was bleeding until after," Christina said.

FBI crime statistics show that arrests of juvenile girls dramatically are on the rise. The acts of bullying have become such a problem they're drawing the attention of legislators, including former prosecutor Peter Vallone Jr.

These girl fights are also worrying parents. Now they have to warn their daughters to not only watch out for the bad boys, but also the bad girls.

"They could have killed my daughter," Nina Kunicki, a parent, said. "One person could kill you, imagine 10 to 15 kids banging on your head."

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    A jury took only about 90 minutes Tuesday to convict former New York City Councilman Daniel Halloran of bribery charges in a scheme to buy a spot on the mayoral ballot for state Sen. Malcolm Smith. Halloran was also found guilty of taking payoffs from what he thought were developers who wanted him to funnel city money their way. The men were actually an FBI agent and an FBI informant.
