Schoolgirl, 14, Left Permanently Disabled After Being Forced To Do 150 Squats

These images show how a 14-year-old schoolgirl has been left permanently disabled after being forced to do 150 squats as punishment at her school.

The incident took place at the Xianshi Vocational Senior High School in Hejiang County in south-western China’s Sichuan Province.

Local media reported that a student leader named Mu punished the unnamed high school student after she was found to have been violating dormitory rules by sneaking in snacks.

She was made to do squats which have now reportedly led to her being permanently disabled.

This happened despite a teacher, who has been named in local media as Liu, being present at the time, but he reportedly did not act to stop the abuse.

The mother of the schoolgirl, who has been named as Zhou in local media, said that the incident happened at about 10pm on 10th June.

Student leader Mu reportedly found snacks on the schoolgirl’s bed and ordered her to do 300 squats.

The schoolgirl denied that the snacks belong to her and said that she had suffered a foot injury in April 2020, but Mu still allegedly forced her to do the squats under the supervision of teacher Liu.

The 14-year-old student was left requiring serious surgery to her foot at various hospitals in the cities of Luzhou and Chengdu.

Doctors told her that she is permanently disabled and she now has to walk on crutches.

She has since also been diagnosed with depression after the incident.

The school has reportedly offered RMB 109,774 (USD 17,000) in compensation but the student’s parents have so far declined.

The supervising teacher at the dormitory, Liu, was reportedly fired on 14th July.

The authorities have stated that they are investigating the matter.

This latest incident comes after a boy in Taiwan died after he was thrown to the mat 27 times during a judo class in April and spent two months in a coma before passing away.

The seven-year-old boy, surnamed Huang and known by his nickname Wei Wei, died in hospital on 29th June.

The incident took place during a judo lesson in the district of Fengyuan in the Taiwanese city of Taichung on 21st April.

The 67-year old instructor, surnamed Ho, ordered a 10-year-old student to throw the victim over his shoulder 20 times, despite the youngster’s pleas halfway through.

The instructor then personally slammed the boy on the mat a further seven times, according to local media.

During the exercise, Huang told the instructor that his head hurt and that he did not want to continue and at one point vomited, however, Ho repeatedly told him to get to his feet and go again, according to reports.

The incident was filmed by the boy’s uncle, who took him to his first classes after he expressed an interest in judo earlier that month, to show his mother that the sport may not be right for him.

The boy passed out around 9pm and became unresponsive, and the instructor called for an ambulance.

The seven-year-old victim was taken to Feng Yuan Hospital where doctors said his injuries resembled those of road accident victims and included severe intracranial haemorrhages.

An emergency craniotomy was carried out and doctors declared the boy as being in a “brain dead state” afterwards.

Doctors added that he would probably remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life if he survived. However, they only gave him a slim chance of making it through.

Two months after he went into a coma, Huang’s parents agreed to take him off life support.
