The Cincinnati Public Schools superintendent has released a statement about an 8-year-old boy's suicide.

Superintendent Mary Ronan rejected the family's claims that a bully slammed Gabriel Taye into a restroom wall.

"If you look at the video, and we have frame by frame, it appears the young man fainted," Mary Ronan told local media in Cincinnati.

Taye's mother and her lawyer argue the video shows another boy injuring him.

The Hamilton County prosecutor is considering whether criminal charges should be filed.
