Bullied Teen -- "I Contemplated Suicide"

Casey Heynes -- the bullied 15-year-old kid from Australia who gained fame when a video showing him defending himself went viral online -- revealed in an interview that the bullying got so bad, he once considered suicide.

Heynes sat down with "A Current Affair" in Australia, saying it was his sister that got him through the tough times.

As for the infamous video, Heynes said he was scared that day and was trying to defuse the situation before his tormentor's friends joined in.

Mission accomplished.
