WTF was this coach possibly thinking?
Denver police launched an investigation this week after a video from a high school cheerleading practice surfaced that the superintendent called “extremely distressing.”
In the video, a teenage girl’s face contorts in pain as she performs a split by extending her legs in opposite directions while sitting on the floor. An adult appears to be pushing her down and other girls hold her arms, apparently to prevent her from breaking out of the split. The girl cries, repeatedly asking them to “please stop.”
The investigation of cheer practice at East High School will involve child abuse detectives, police said. Nobody has been charged.
