in Latest

SEREMBAN: A pre-school pupil is seriously injured after he was believed to have been thrown off the second floor of Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Tasik Jaya in Paroi here yesterday.

It is learnt that in the 1.30pm incident, the six-year-old boy had just finished school.

He was making his way to meet his mother at the teacher’s office located on the second floor when he was stopped by a special needs student of the Special Education Integration Program (PPKI).

It is also learnt that earlier, the PPKI student had attempted to lift a Year Five student but failed as the boy was too big.

The PPKI student then allegedly lifted the victim and threw him out of the balcony.

Sekolah Kebangsaan Taman Tasik Jaya’s Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) chairman Idris Ismail said the victim suffered serious injuries with wounds on his head, a broken right leg and left hand as well as injury to the hip bone.

He said the boy was rushed to the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital here for treatment and is now warded as he is in stable condition.

“It is too early to identify who actually hurled the victim as we are still investigating the case,” he said when contacted here yesterday.

But he did not discard the notion that the victim may be thrown off by a PPKI student as the school has two pre-schooler classes and a PPKI class.

Negri Sembilan Education Department director Datuk Kalsom Khalid confirmed of the incident but said she has yet to get the full report.

PPKI or ‘Program Pendidikan Khas Integrasi’ is a programme provided for children with learning, hearing and vision disabilities in normal primary and secondary schools, as well as in technical/vocational secondary schools.-NST
