Teen says she was beaten over her hair

(NBC) – A New Jersey middle school student is recovering from injuries she suffered after being attacked by another student.

Felicia Daniels says she was attacked by another girl from school apparently upset with her hair braids.

The middle school student says the girl approached her, told her she liked her braids then began hitting and pulling her hair.

Daniels  lost large amounts of hair in the attack but was otherwise not seriously injured. A third student recorded the attack on cell phone and distributed around the school.

School administrators plan to use that video in their investigation to see which students were involved.
