Eight-year-old boy electrocuted to death in school

A young student at Lampang’s Chumchonbanmai School succumbed to injuries on Monday (July 13) after being electrocuted by a high-voltage Internet connection box that had been installed in the campus by government authorities.

 

Though police arrived as soon as they were notified of the accident, they were unable to save the eight-year-old boy.

 

His body was sent to Lampang Hospital for autopsy and doctors confirmed he had died from electrocution.

 

The boy’s parents are demanding that the school take responsibility for the incident and investigate the real reason behind their son’s death.

What were the teachers doing in the meantime before the police arrived I wonder?

Surely they should be trying CPR.

Is this the initial shock, or do they think there's something else happened?

Electrocuted to death? Uh, that's redundant...

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Definition of electrocute
transitive verb
1 : to kill or severely injure by electric shock

Having taught a few years in government high schools...safety protocols don't really exist. Kids routinely recruited to get on ladders to clear debris off the roof, Exposed cables , Pesticide spraying in the schools during in session persiods with kids walking thru the spray....I kid you not

That's because most of the teachers have the IQ and competence at teaching,  of a squirrel.

At the entrance gate of local school where the kids run around and play without a care in the world

don't worry they are "safe"   because they wear a face mask :wacko:P_20170629_153501.thumb.jpg.7bf0ee4ef67f69745f7e1ffed77d881f.jpg

Wondering why they can't log-in into TikTok and Fatebuk, I'd imagine.
