Security footage of a 5-year-old child getting thrown to the ground by his daycare teacher is shocking many people in Korea. 


The Gyeongnam Police Department announced on November 16 that they have arrested a daycare teacher, surname Hwang, who is accused of grabbing the 5-year-old boy by his arms and throwing him onto the ground on November 11 inside the daycare facility. 


In the released footage, Hwang can be seen lifting up the boy and then throwing him on the floor. She then drags the boy into a dark room nearby. The police report states that Hwang testified, "The boy went out of my control and was running around the entrance of the daycare, so I disciplined him." 


When the boy's parents picked him up, they found their son with a bloody nose and bruises. The parents, shocked, uploaded the security footage of the abuse that they had obtained onto an online community, seeking support and help from others. They wrote, "When we asked the daycare what had happened, they said that our son fell and hit his face on a plastic chair. But when we went to a hospital, the doctor said that the injury would take 2 weeks to heal. Besides the physical injury, our child could not sleep for several days."

The daycare center has since removed the teacher but they're still claiming, "There were some rough actions but there was no abuse."

    Usually it's pretty clear the school/teacher is at fault but in this case? It looks more like an accident than abuse to be honest. The teacher shouldn't have lifted the boy up that high, as it's pretty obvious the boy would've lost his balance. But it also seems like it wasn't really the intent of the teacher to actually throw the boy onto the ground. Perhaps the boy was a lot lighter than she expected, or perhaps she didn't realize her own strength in the heat of the moment.. no idea. But abuse? And then she placed the boy in the room on the side, she didn't drag him at all, she lifted him up and carried him there and put him down normally. This wasn't abuse either. And during the disciplining she lowered herself to his eye height to make sure the boy understood what she was telling him... all these things point to a teacher who knew exactly how to get through to the boy in order to discipline him. So where is the abuse here? The only moment where you could even suggest some form of aggression was when she more or less dropped the kid at the start, causing him to stumble (because it definitely wasn't a throw), after that it was all very straightforward discipline. I'm not sure how that kid got a bloody nose and bruises, but wherever he got those, it's unlikely from anything that you can see on the video. Perhaps something happened before that? I don't know...

    It's one thing to discipline a child for bad behavior, but it becomes a problem if discipline becomes abuse. Disciplining a child should not result in physical injuries, and the fact that the school tried to cover it up by lying made it even worse.
