CHINESE SCHOOLBOY MURDERS TEACHER IN CLASSROOM – According to reports coming out of China, a young pupil murdered his teacher by cutting his throat after the teacher confiscated his mobile phone.
The teacher, Sun Wakang, noticed one of his pupils not paying attention to the class as he was engaged in playing games on his mobile phone.
In order to get the boy to pay attention to his studies, he walked over and took his phone.
According to China.org.cn Mr. Sun Wakang was well liked and respected at the middle school and had been employed there for the last 5 years.
Chinese media went on to report that whilst Mr. Sun Wakang had confiscated the boys’ mobile phone he did return it at the end of the day.
However, the boy Lei, decided to take revenge and snuck up on Mr. Sun Wakang as he marked student papers in the classroom alone. Coming from behind he produced a weapon and then slit his teacher’s throat.
The well liked and respected 32 year old chemistry teacher, who has a child of his own at a school in Fuzhou, Jiangxi province, bled to death before the ambulance could arrive.
China is said to be in a state of shock as the attack comes just four days after National Teacher’s Day where student’s honour their teachers.
Officials at the school released a statement saying that another teacher had heard a commotion in the class and was horrified at the scene as she entered the classroom.
An ambulance was called immediately but Mr. Sun Wakang died from blood loss before help could arrive.
Middle schools in China mainly comprise of students ranging from the ages of 7 to 12 and therefore Lei will fall anywhere within that age range.
The Chinese authorities have yet to provide any further details on the murder including the whereabouts of Lei or his age.
