Lawsuit filed against school for 2007 gymnastics injury

Date Posted: 2008-06-13

An accident during a gymnastics class last year that left a junior high school student paralyzed and in a coma has resulted in a lawsuit against Uruma City Board of Education.

The student at a Uruma City junior high school had been performing a standing body turnaround when he injured his cervical vertebrae and was hospitalized. The parents contend “a teacher should give very good advice to students, and the teacher should be watching when our son turned his body.”

An attorney for Uruma City says, however, “A teacher gives very careful advice to the student, but the parents are saying the teacher must be watching him.” The lawyer added in the court brief “It is not necessary to watch students all the time. There is no need to put a special helper in the class.”

The parents are suing for ₯200 million to cover damages and medical care for their son.
