Soc Son District Education and Training Division head Tran Thi Thanh Hue said that the teachers were in charge of the class where the three-year-old boy was enrolled.

News broke on Thursday that a student of the Phu Lo kindergarten in suburban Soc Son District got his head trapped in a slide during outdoor activities on Monday.

By the time the teachers found him, the boy was very weak and later succumbed to his injuries at the National Pediatrics Hospital.

Details on how he got himself stuck or the image of the slide in question were yet to be confirmed.

 

Hue said that all three teachers were experienced in taking care of children.

“The main responsibility is on the kindergarten and the teachers of the class who didn’t monitor the child closely and let the tragedy happen,” she said.
