Mom charges ‘cover up’ in son’s death at school

Date Posted: 2006-10-27

A nine-year-old boy killed in November 2004 when a television fell on him at school was a victim, and not the culprit.

That’s the opinion the youngster’s mother has taken to the media as she charges police, school officials and the government with covering up what really happened. The official reports describe how the boy, a third grade student at Ikei Elementary School in Yonashiro Town, was running in the classroom and crashed into the television sitting on a stand, toppling the television down on him. This Spring, one and half years after the incident, media doing a follow-up talked to the mother.

“According to that news, it looks like my boy was wrong, and he should not run in the classroom,” the mother says, “and that’s what people think, but that’s not the truth.” The distraught mother “wants the school side to declare a mistake made, and apologize to my son and for my son’s honor.” She said she was prepared to take Uruma City to court to press her point.

She did exactly that in July, saying “At that time, my sun couldn’t be running in the classroom. It’s impossible. Witnesses now say the television was not set up in the right place, and it was no wonder that the television could fall down.”

Uruma City disagrees, pointing out “Actually, the boy was wrong too. He shouldn’t run in a classroom.” The mother says it’s not about money. “When I took Uruma City to court, again the newspaper said I’m after the injury damage money. I thought the newspapers write only what makes readers laugh, so I’m going to write a story about my son and get readers to understand.”
