SC: Teacher's aide suspended for allegedly attacking autistic girl

A teacher's aide in North Myrtle Beach, SC, has been suspended after allegedly physically abusing an autistic student.

Two teachers at North Myrtle Beach High School reported the aide to the principal after they say they saw the aide attack 15-year-old Aubrey McCabe. They say they saw the aide grabbing, pushing, and hitting Aubrey, leaving a red mark on her arm.

Aubrey has limited speech skills. Her mom says Aubrey had been telling her, "No school mommy. Is hurt," in the weeks before the aide was reported.

The school district has put the aide on leave while it investigates the situation. The school contacted the police, who investigated, but did not charge the aide with a crime.
