The child had been battling for her life after relatives claimed she was pushed down the stairs by a teacher.While this is the accusation made by a relative, other reports suggest that she slipped and fell while running and that she was skipping when she fell. She was rushed to the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC).However, due to the severity of the injuries she sustained as a result of the incident, she was transferred to the GPHC.Angela Hamilton, mother of the child, related that she was told by doctors that the injuries her daughter sustained are too severe to have been caused by a simple fall.The woman reported that her daughter was constantly being bullied at school by teachers because she is “not bright”.She recalled seeing her daughter around lunchtime on Monday and said that she was not in good spirits since she was instructed to remain in class by a teacher.“I don’t know what really transpired but all I know they saying a teacher push her down the railing. Right now, my daughter in a coma and she is not even responding. She just laying down there. This is like a disaster. I tripping out right now. I got to find money to go to town every day”, Hamilton, who is a security guard, told this publication.The mother alleged that the teachers at the school are not forthcoming with any information as to what really transpired but have offered their apologies.“They now saying sorry but my child still lie down there”, she cried. The mother, who has two other children attending the same school, is now reluctant to send them to school as they too can be bullied and pushed down a flight of stairs.An aunt of the injured child has refuted the theory that her niece fell after running and tripping on her shoelace while noting that the child does not wear laced shoes to school.last_img
