Victoria Lindsay's story made headlines in 2008 when a video surfaced on YouTube, which showed 6 girls beating Lindsay while two male teens waited outside the home.
According to sources, Victoria, who was not living at home with her parents at the time, was lured to the home where the girls beat her until she was completely unconscious. Once she regained consciousness, the girls beat her again.
The girl fight beating was so severe that her own parents did not recognize her. In fact, the Lifetime movie version was mild compared to what really happened.
"I just got jumped," said Victoria Lindsay, after dialing 911 to report the beating.
After the beating, the girls proudly posted their girl fight video on MySpace and Youtube. The video went viral. Most of the public was sickened by the video.
