AUBURN, IN-- An Indiana boy who had been bullied got some help on his first day back at school from a biker gang.

Sixth grader Phil Mick of Auburn said he was bullied so bad at school that he told his mother he didn't want to live anymore.

When a local biker gang, called the United Motorcycle Enthusiasts, caught wind of the situation they came to help.

All 50 of the bikers took Phil to school for his first day  

The biker gang also bought h school supplies and some new clothes.

Phil's mother Tammy says the bullying hurt her as much as it did her son, and she's not sure what she would have done without the help of the bikers. "That's why I'm thanking Brent and everybody for being there because if it wasn't for them I don't know what Phil would do this year."

The organizer of the ride says they want to offer a helping hand in the community. "The motorcycle community is big on trying to get help for teenage suicide and bullying for the kids. It's just crazy, it's an epidemic," said Brent Warfield who organized the motorcycle ride.

And Phil says he's got all the protection he needs. "I got a guardian angel watching over me."

Phil says the first day of school was a success, and he thinks his biker buddies have a lot to do with that.
