A number of boys have reportedly been filmed having sex with a 15-year-old schoolgirl in the bathrooms of a Florida high school.

Some 25 boys were seen going in and out of the toilets at South Fort Myers High School in Florida at the time, although the number who allegedly had sex with the girl was unclear.

The age of consent in Floria is 18, although since 2007 the law has made provisions for 16 and 17-year-olds to consent to have sex with someone aged 16 to 23. However no one is believed to have been arrested or to be pressing charges over the incident.

Footage of what happened was allegedly filmed by students who are believed to have used the app Snapchat, which can take up to 10 seconds of video. The film, which automatically deletes after it is seen, was then passed around among the students.

Student Petislin Cadeau told Fox4News: “Like, how did it happen? Like, where was everybody at?

““I heard a video was around but I never really saw it or anything. It just like circulated around.”

The school did not comment on which students had been involved, although it did confirm disciplinary action had been taken.

One parent told Fox4News that he was saddened by what had happened.

Eric Struble, the father of two 15-year-old girls, said: ”Shock. Disbelief. Concern. Sad. It's our job to protect our children and to teach them right from wrong.

“Somebody should have been notified or been aware of what was going on, I believe.”
