Two teachers assistants in Osceola County have been arrested after video shows them ignoring a fight in a classroom.

Kristie Gilmore and Mona Sagar had access to a phone but didn't call for help when a student started kicking and pushing another student in a classroom at Discovery Intermediate School in Kissimmee, investigators say.

Deputies said the student tells the victim, who has a medical condition, "I will stomp your chest in and kill you."

The school district will suspend Gilmore and Sagar, as they both face child neglect charges.

The students were also arrested.
