Confirmed: Teacher seriously injured after being attacked by parent in St. Mary





A female teacher of the Timothy Burke Basic School has been hospitalised after being hit in the head with a brick by an irate parent in St. Mary yesterday.

Classes at the basic school located in Lucky Hill have been cancelled for the remainder of the week, following the attack on the teacher. According to Irie FM News, the argument began after a five-year-old male student urinated on himself and his teacher gave him a bucket and a mop to clean up the mess. It is understood that the Father of the child came to collect his son in the evening and saw him with the cleaning agents. The Father of the child then became upset and this led to an argument in which the man used a decorative block to hit the teacher in the head while another teacher had to flee from the assault. The injured teacher was rushed to the St. Ann' Bay hospital for treatment and she was later transferred to a Kingston based hospital where a CAT-Scan was conducted and after seeing the results the doctors have decided to conduct emergency surgery. The Father of the child has since turned himself into police custody.

HOW COULD SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN TO SUCH A YOUNG CHILD AND THE PARENTS WERE NOT CONTACTED, THAT MEANS THAT THIS CHILD HAD TO KEEP ON THE SAME SMELLY CLOTHES ALL DAY. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THE FATHER OVER-REACTED, BUT JAMAICANS SHOULD KNOW BY NOW THAT WE GET HOT-HEADED EASILY AND THEREFORE MUST USE WISDOM IN EVERY SITUATION TO AVOID THESE TYPE OF TRAGEDIES. I AM NOT AGAINST VIOLENCE, WHEN IT IS REQUIRED TO SAVE A LIFE...BUT THS WAS TOO HARSH.
