8 Year old Kameisha Butler, a vibrant youngster of the Port Henderson Primary School, sadly passed away just days ago after a delayed surgery to be carried out after it was discovered that the blood vessels had burst in back of her eye.
It’s alleged that Kemiesha was instructed by a male classroom teacher to stand in the hot boiling sun and stare into the sky for an extended period, as some sort of punishment.
With that exposure to the sun, the child began to experience pain in the head and neck the following day. This continued and she was rushed to the children’s hospital.
It was then discovered that a blood vessel had burst in back of her eye. Placed on wait for a surgery; this surgery didn’t went in accordance and little Kemeisha past away. Mr Butler was informed that the teacher who is believed to believe responsible and had fled, is allegedly now in Police custody.
The first child for the Butlers', 8 year old Kemeisha died leaving 2 younger siblings ages 5 and 2 years old, and while the 5 year old would regularly ask for her older sister, the family is yet to tell her the sad news.
To add insult to Mr. Butler's grief, sources disclosed that Mr Butler was allegedly called to the school his child once attended, and was given $5,000 JMD. Why was he given this money is unknown.
"I screamed and bawl out. Morning, noon and night mi bawl. Mi bawl every day;" Mr Butler also stated that Doctors at the hospital treated him with little respect when he pressed for answers. However he was later informed that she died from sun stroke!
The parents of this young child are struggling to find the funds for her burial. Source had disclosed information, but for now its an allegation, that the so called 'punishment' the teacher gave Kemisha might have caused the 8 year old’s untimely death.
If these allegations can be proven then the person or persons responsible should be held accountable for this child’s passing also the family’s pain endured.
It’s alleged that the teacher is no longer working at the school.
