Parents Upset Over Picture Showing Son Separated From Class

Posted: Updated:

The parents of a boy who has spinal muscular dystrophy were upset when a school photo shows him completely separated from his classmates.

The parents wanted the picture retaken and they got their wishes!

The company that took the photo did return and take a new one, with the boy sitting with his classmates.

The original photo shows 7-year-old Miles Ambridge sitting in his wheelchair several feet away from the rest of his second grade class in New Westminister, British Columbia.

They do not think the photographer meant any harm, but they say it's important to raise awareness of how different the picture made their son look.
