Teacher Lops Off Chunk of Student's Ear
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - A teacher enforcing school regulations on haircuts snipped one girl's locks to ear's length Thursday but ended up lopping off a chunk of her ear as well, police said.
Laweng Yangpakdee, a teacher at Wat Dan Prachakorn school in southern Chumpon province, had been inspecting students after their morning assembly to ensure their hair was regulation length, said police Capt. Kamsingh Sriyapai.
``He was going to cut the hair of this girl who had a haircut that was against school regulations. ... Her hair was against her ear, and he just cut without being careful,'' Kamsingh said.
He did not know how much of 15-year-old Theedarat Pattong's earlobe was cut off.
But a report on the Kom Chad Luek newspaper Web site quoted plastic surgeon Dr. Wiboon Thongduang as saying that half of the earlobe was severed, and could not be reattached because the girl did not get proper medical attention quickly enough.
Theeradat's father reported the incident to police, but no charges have been filed against the teacher, who along with the victim was to be questioned Friday, Kamsingh said.
Could you imagaine somebody doing something like this to a kid in the US. If this is a dupe please lock it.
In America the KID would do it to the TEACHER, and God forbid you complain, because it might hurt the self-esteem of the student!
