At the End of His Rope

Ten year old Tang Chu, who lives in Ghizhou, China was trying to watch his favorite cartoons when he became annoyed by a noise from outside. Tang_Chu_apt Workman Liu Mai was using his electric drill to install new lights outside the 8th floor apartment. While most ten year olds would probably be driven by curiosity, Tang Chu just wanted to stop the noise. He grabbed a knife from the kitchen, and cut the workman's safety rope. That left him dangling 100 feet up by a single rope. His workmate Zhang Pan heard his screams, and called firemen, who were able to winch Liu Mai to safety on the 11th floor. liumai2 Tang Chu said that the builders were too loud and it was distracting him as he tried to watch his favorite cartoons. He has since apologized for his actions. Father Tang Peng said, "He just didn't think. We have apologized and bought the man a new rope." liumai3 "We also gave him a good talking too and explained what he did was very dangerous. "He has promised he will not do something similar again. I think we may also need to take him for some anger management therapy." Just make sure the therapist keeps his voice down.

High School Drill Team

Deltona High School Senior Kayla Marie Carrera admitted to WKMG reporters that she should have had her hair tied back during shop class. It's one of the rules, and she was aware of it.

While she was using a drill press, her hair was caught. Before another student was able to free her, some of her hair was pulled out, almost to the scalp. Nancy Holland Wait, spokesperson for Volusia County Schools, says that a nurse from Deltona High School looked at the 17-year-old girl’s injuries. Holland Wait said that the nurse decided that she did not need to call 911. Kayla’s mother, Lissette Carrera, says the girl didn’t have her hair pulled back like she was supposed to.  However, as her daughter is only 17 and won't be an actual adult for a few more months, thinks the teacher should be responsible. “My thing is if she wasn’t following the rules in the classroom, she should have never been allowed on that machine in the first place because the teacher himself is putting her at danger."  she said. “He’s the adult, he supervises, she is the student. He should have told her, put your hair back before you get on the machine, these are the rules of the classroom, you must follow them." “I was told that they didn’t think it was severe enough to be calling 911. As you can see by her scalp, she’s lost her hair." When Kayla visited the emergency room later, they gave her painkillers and discharged her. Although there was no medical emergency and Kayla didn't need any treatment, her mother believes someone at Deltona High School needs to learn from this incident. “At all cost speak to an adult, call 911 first and then if they deem that it’s okay, that she should be discharged as she was, then that’s okay. But I would rather err to the side of caution." The school evidently felt that it was better not to err at all. Kayla’s mother said she plans to meet with school district leaders on Thursday.  She said she will not allow her daughter to go back to Deltona High School until new procedures are implemented forcing the school personnel to make more errors.
