(Scroll down for video) Parents are heartbroken after students urinated into the water bottle of their special needs son, while the bottle was in his locker.

Michael Lozano, 14, who attends the Folsom High School in California, called his parents Hilda and Ricardo, and asked them to come to see him after the incident.

The parents were on campus at the time for a meeting to discuss the individual education program in place for their son, who had been diagnosed with autism.

They told Michael to come to the room, where they were having the meeting. However, Vice Principal Annie Conover found the boy and demanded that he hand over the bottle of water.

The principal spilled the smelly and foamy content, and she washed the bottle with soap and water.

After Hilda learned of the principal's actions, she went looking for her, but was told that all school principals were in a meeting and nobody is available to talk to her.

Hilda and Ricardo are upset that the school is protecting the bullies rather than helping the victim.

Sadly, the bullying intensified. The day after the water bottle incident, someone tampered with Michael’s lunchbox and opened his sealed containers while he was called out of class.
