The girl’s claims that the snacks were not hers and that she sustained a foot injury were ignored and she was still squatting at school in southwest China’s Sichuan Province
A teenage girl became permanently disabled and required crutches to walk after doing 150 squats as a punishment for smuggling snacks into her school dormitory.
The 14-year-old girl was caught by a teacher on the way to her high school dorm in southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
The school girl’s mother, referred to as Zhou in local media, said the incident occurred around 10 p.m. on June 10th.
A teacher reportedly told the student to do 300 squats after finding snacks on the student’s bed.
Her claim that the snacks were not hers and that she sustained a foot injury in April 2020 was ignored, and she was still forced to do the squat under the supervision of a teacher who allegedly did nothing to stop the abuse.
The student had to have leg and foot operations, for which she traveled to various hospitals in Luzhou and Chengdu cities.
Doctors have told her that she is permanently disabled and that she has to walk on crutches because of her injuries.
After the traumatic incident, she has also been diagnosed with depression.
Meanwhile, the dormitory’s supervising teacher was reportedly fired on July 14, while authorities said they were investigating the matter.
According to local reports, the school offered the family RMB 109,774 – the equivalent of £ 12,530 – in compensation.
However, it is believed that the student’s parents have so far refused.
Reports of the traumatic punishment come just months after news of a seven-year-old boy who died after being tossed 27 times on the mat by his trainer and classmates during a judo class in Taiwan.
The boy reportedly signed up for class just two weeks before the horror incident after convincing his parents to try a new sport.
A disturbing video released shortly after showed the boy being tossed onto a mat by an older classmate while exercising.
The footage can be heard saying “my leg,” “my head,” and “I don’t want it!” cries. but his trainer keeps telling him to get up and telling the older boy to keep throwing him.
He seems too weak to stand up, but the trainer picks him up and throws him a few more times.
At some point the child vomits, but the “training” does not stop.
The little boy eventually passed out and was taken to a hospital, where doctors found that he had suffered severe cerebral haemorrhage.
According to local media reports, he died eight weeks after being hospitalized.
The coach was arrested on suspicion of fatal injury and the use of a minor to commit a crime.
If found guilty, he faces anything from at least seven years in prison to life in prison.
According to the Taichung District Court, he has denied any wrongdoing.
The public prosecutor initially released him after the questioning and accepted his explanation that what had happened to the boy was part of “normal training”.
The child’s family held a press conference after he was released, and the court subsequently said there was evidence to suggest that the coach may have committed a serious crime.
