A beautiful 17-year-old Thai student may forever live with her deformed face following a tragic incident in her school involving her gym teacher.
The teen claimed that her face got disfigured after her gym teacher threw a mug at her and hit a facial nerve tissue. Naruedee Jodsanthia sustained a nerve damage that made her unable to control certain parts of her face. She was unable to close her mouth resulting from the incident.
According to Naruedee’s post in social media, the class was told by their physical education teacher, Paithoon Klaengkrathok, 58, to sit outside a classroom while he went away to make draw tickets to make takraw teams. Naruedee and seven other students stood up because the sunlight was strong on their spot.
Thinking that the students disobeyed his instructions, he threw the mug without aiming at anyone in particular and scolded them. The mug hit her left eyebrow inflicting a nerve injury. The local hospitals were unable to treat her, so the family sought treatment in the nation’s capital in Bangkok.
Pavena Foundation for Children and Women took Miss Naruedee for treatment at a private hospital in Bangkok. Earlier, the family went to state-run Ramathibodi Hospital where the treatment cost was estimated at 300,000 baht.
The family reached out to the teacher Paithoon and to the school Chokchaisamakkee School to seek assistance for the medical treatment. However, the educational institution failed to assist the family. In response, education and justice officials launched an investigation.
Students said that Paithoon is friendly outside school, but is strict when in class. They said that Paithoon threw a mug to stop students from chatting noisily.
