HÀ NỘI — Three teachers of a kindergarten in Hà Nội where a toddler died after being trapped inside a slide have been suspended, an education official said on Friday morning.
Sóc Sơn District Education and Training Division head Trần Thi Thanh Huế 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 Phù Lỗ kindergarten in suburban Sóc Sơn 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.
Huế 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.
Police are investigating the case. — VNS
