21st September 2023 – (Hunan) In a shocking revelation following the recent incident of a 9-year-old primary school girl being brutally beaten by her teacher in Hunan, another case of suspected campus abuse has come to light. This time, a 14-year-old middle school boy allegedly endured severe punishment at the hands of his class teacher. It is reported that the student was forced to perform 200 squats as a penalty by his homeroom teacher, and the following day, he was compelled to run six laps around the playground. As a result, the boy developed rhabdomyolysis, with his liver and kidney functions severely impaired, leading to a critical condition. The local education bureau has issued an apology regarding the incident and promised to cover the medical expenses. The teacher involved has been suspended pending a thorough investigation.
The incident took place at Changsha County Quantang High School in Jingzhou Town, Ningxiang City, Hunan Province. According to reports, the 14-year-old student, Liu Mucheng, was initially in a life-threatening state. Liu’s uncle, Mr. Yu, stated that on Tuesday of last week (the 12th), Liu was punished by his homeroom teacher, Mr. Tao, with 200 squats for chatting with a classmate. Following the punishment, Liu experienced severe leg muscle pain, difficulty walking, and even passed blood in his urine. By the 14th, Liu’s condition worsened, and despite requesting leave for physical education, he was forced by his teacher, Mr. Wen, to engage in a running exercise, completing six laps around the school playground.
Mr. Yu mentioned that after Liu Mucheng collapsed during the sixth lap, unable to continue, he requested the school to allow him to call his mother and have her pick him up.
He further explained that when Liu’s mother saw her son passing blood in his urine, she immediately rushed him to People’s Hospital of Ningxiang. Following a medical examination, doctors issued a critical condition notice, and Liu was promptly admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) with the warning that a delay of just one hour could have led to kidney failure.
Ultimately, the hospital confirmed Liu Mucheng’s diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis, liver and kidney damage, and allergic dermatitis, necessitating his stay in the ICU until his condition improved on Tuesday (the 19th).
According to internal sources at Hongxing Video News, the Education Bureau of Ningxiang City has issued an apology to Liu Mucheng’s family and assured them that they will cover the medical expenses. As for the school involved, the principal and the teachers implicated in the incident have been suspended, and the relevant authorities have initiated an investigation into the matter.
