LAS VEGAS (KSNV — A 13-year-old Las Vegas middle school student is fighting for her life after she was severely beaten on school grounds.

Friends of the girl say the altercation is the result of the girl being bullied.

Sonia Quintana visited O'Callaghan Middle School shortly before the incident, and says she saw fear in the eyes of two girls.

"They're begging for help because they were going to be jumped," Quintana says. "That's what they stated, they feared to go back out here. They were just telling them just go to class why they wouldn't help them."

Quintana learned of the beating that followed when she picked up her daughter from school.

She now fears for her daughter, a childhood friend of the girl.

The victim's family says they had gone to school the morning of the beating to address the continued bullying.

The fight happened during lunchtime.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
