A MARBELLA schoolboy’s parents are suing a teacher and the regional education department after their son was almost blinded by a pair of scissors.

Their son, aged 3, is at risk of losing an eye due to injuries he sustained when a classmate threw some scissors at him at school, according to a local Spanish Press report.

The child’s parents claim the accident occurred while she allegedly left the class unattended to tell a colleague she had won some money on the ‘El Gordo’ lottery on December 22 last year.

The children were in pre-school class taking part in a handicrafts activity in which they were using sheets of card, glue and scissors.

The denuncia (complaint) alleges the teacher left the children alone on two occasions – for several minutes – according to the statements of three mothers who were at the school at the time.

It was during this second occasion she allegedly left the room that tragedy struck. The school has denied these claims, maintaining she never left the room, according to the report.

The boy underwent surgery and doctors have not yet determined if there is any permanent damage to his sight.
