The ten year old carried the asphalt in a cut off container but it spilled onto his arm and hand leaving him with horrific injuries. He still faces the possibility of being permanently handicapped by what happened. The director – now retired – has refused to accept responsibility for the incident. Now the family of Sorawit or Ton Nao have appealed to the Damrongdhama watchdog for justice in the case. They are a poor family and want compensation for what happened to the child. A video on TNA showed a reconstruction of the incident at Nongphokwittayayon School in Don Jan district of Kalasin in Thailand’s north east. Mother Anong, 41, said her son, now on school holidays, was made to carry the asphalt by the director on July 24th. They were repairing cracks. She showed a cub scout uniform still stained with the sticky substance. Efforts to seek compensation failed and the director has now retired.
