Teen in coma after assault by classmate

Date Posted: 2009-02-12

An 18-year-old high school student lies unconscious in a southern Okinawa hospital after being beaten by a fellow student.

The boy has been unresponsive since the incident, and his assailant has been arrested and charged with assault. Police investigators say the victim went to the assailant’s home, where talk turned to an argument, and then a fight. The victim, who police have not identified, was beaten, kicked in the head, and tossed across the room. That toss, police say, sent the victim’s head into a wall and he fell to the floor.
“Wake up, wake up” the assailant pleaded with the victim, trying to bring him around. When that failed, he called police who called an ambulance for the victim, then arrested the assailant after listening to explanations of the fight.

“I feel very sad about this,” says the boys’ high school principal, “but we still don’t understand the motive of te assailant.” The principal says the attacker was “a very ordinary school boy who was never absent and always listened very well to teachers. He was obedient.”
