A 14-year-old boy who was forced to do 200 deep squats as punishment by his teacher, ended up in ICU in a critical condition suffering from liver damage.
The ordeal of the boy, surnamed Liu, was shared on social media by his father after the teacher, surnamed Tao, issued the punishment for talking with classmates at Quan Tang Middle School in Changsha in southern China’s Hunan province.
Liu felt severe discomfort for days after the punishment and, despite telling teachers he had pains in his leg, he was made to walk laps in a PE class.
Ignoring Liu’s pain, a teacher called Wen, insisted that “slow jogging could alleviate muscle soreness and might help with muscle recovery.”
