New York, NY– A pregnant Bronx teacher who tried to break up a fight between two students suffered a miscarriage, after the woman was accidentally struck in the altercation, as reported by WPIX.

The 4-month pregnant teacher, Lissedia Batista, 27, had reportedly just started her Spanish class lesson at Exploration Academy in the Claremont section of the Bronx, when the fight broke out.

A witness reported that a student walked into the class about 5 minutes late and approached another student, who was sitting down at a desk. The late student demanded that the other student get out of his desk and when the other student refused to get up, a fight started.

Batista quickly jumped in to break up the fight, when the fifth grade teacher was accidentally elbowed in the stomach by one of the students. Batista reportedly immediately fell to the ground.

Batista was rushed to the North Central Hospital, where doctors determined that she miscarried.

The two students who were involved in the fight were suspended from school. It is unknown if any assault charges will be filed.
