School attack on boy, 10

Trinidad and Tobago's Newsday "A TEN-YEAR-OLD standard four schoolboy sustained severe injuries to his neck and vertebra including a slipped disc and torn ligaments after he was struck a blow to the back of his neck while standing with school-mates at assembly last week Wednesday at the Guaico Presbyterian Primary School.

Schoolboy Brian Torries cannot move his neck or even nod as his chest, neck and head remain heavily bandaged to aid the healing process on his vertebra. Brian said that at about 8.30 am last week Wednesday, while standing in assembly prior to the start of classes, he felt a heavy, painful blow to the back of his neck."
