"Sorry we set light to your son - we were just having a laugh" teens tell distraught mother.

Three Chainat teens have been pictured wai-ing in apology to a mother after they covered him with mosquito spray and set light to him.

They said they were just having a bit of fun and it all went wrong.

They still love their mate, really. They weren't trying to kill him.

The case has caused widespread alarm and happened on September 20th at Racha Prachanukhroh 46 school in the central Thai province of Chainat.

Chananchit or Earth, 14, had gone into a small storage area. His friends got spray to try and make him come out. When he still wouldn't emerge they got a lighter.

Earth is still in hospital recovering from severe burns.

His mother Kotchaphan Bunthong, 42, would not let the matter rest and has gone to the Paweena Hongsakul foundation to seek justice.

Yesterday Thai Rath published pictures believed to be from five days after the incident when the three boys wai-ed the mother in apology.

One of the three told the reporters yesterday that it was a prank that got out of hand: "We were going to wash some clothes together but Earth went into the storeroom where he was singing.

"We asked him when he was going to come out and he said he would do the washing himself later and was not coming out.

"So I sprayed mozzie spray into the room. He still refused to come out so we got a lighter and lit it".

The vapor ignited with a bang and when the boys realized the seriousness of the situation they called teachers immediately who took Earth to hospital.

"We were just having some fun and are friends of Earth," said the boy. "We had no intention of killing him".

The mother is furious that parents of the boys have reneged on promises to pay for her sons medical treatment.

Ok, hang on a minute, they did the Wai thing, now wake me up when they pay the 500 baht fine, split three ways no doubt.

 

If I was the mother, the pressure would be on the school, "duty of care" I am sure is a world wide thing, or maybe not here in LOS

Immature Thai boys who will grow up to be immature Thai men.:WPFflags:

With (a) school directors and teachers as influential role models, the next generation is <deleted>****, if this is anything to go on

 

oh wait... it is something to go on and it is reoccurring in one form or another.... ergo, the next generation is definitely <deleted>*****!

in properly organized societies parents would be held responsible for the behavior of their underage children.
Responsible in the sense of going to court and be tried.
And probably the (Head)master also for neglect of duty.

Why is the schools insurance NOT paying for the treatment, this needs to be looked at. Children in the care of the school should be covered by the educational establishments insurance. The school can get the money from the other children's parents if they want

 

If the school had insurance.

 

As it seems the authorities will do nothing making schools have mandatory insurance may see education standards rise as incompetent staff will raise the premiums, and we all know in Thailand money is number one...
