Four New Jersey high school students have been suspended indefinitely after they allegedly attacked a 14-year-old student in the hallway, who took her life 48 hours later after video of the attack surfaced online.

Ocean County prosecutors reportedly told Michael Kuch, father of 14-year-old Adriana Olivia Kuch, that at least three of the girls involved are facing criminal charges for the February 1 attack on his daughter at Central Regional High School in Berkeley Township, according to NBC 4.

District officials said that the four girls’ suspensions will last until the legal process plays out.

Family members found Adriana Kuch dead by suicide at her Bayville home on February 3. Just two days earlier, video posted to social media revealed several students brutally attacking the freshman as she and her boyfriend walked down the school hallway.

According to NJ.com, the less than one minute video showed Adriana Kuch walking down the hallway when a female student repeatedly hit her in the face with a water bottle. After she fell to the floor, the female student continued pulling her hair and punching her head. At least two students could be heard off-camera cheering on the attack.

The attack was broken up 30 seconds later by two school employees, with Adriana Kuch left bruised and bloodied on the floor.

Michael Kuch told NBC 4 that his daughter was taken to a nurse, not the hospital, despite blacking out and being covered in bruises.

"I want the entire world to know what these animals did to my daughter," Michael Kuch said, adding that "a kid is assaulted with a weapon and their policy is not to call the police or file a report."

On Wednesday, more than 200 students at Central Regional High School staged a walkout, expressing their anger over the school administration’s handling of bullying.

"Adriana took her own life because nobody at the school was able to help or care or step in," sophomore Roman Valez told NBC 4. "I would actually like to teach the people who bully what they’re actually doing and how it affects."

Another student said he wanted those involved to be "criminally charged because some girl killed herself because of their actions."

"Adriana seemed to have been an especially loved student. A neighbor shared video from last summer when a daughter appeared to be drowning in her backyard pool — that's when Adrianna jumped in to save the little girl," NBC 4 reported.

"She was like a daughter to me, she was at my house almost every day," said neighbor Roxanne Gattuso.
