A ceiling fan fell on 13-year-old Harsh in a Delhi school.
The fan fell on the Class 7 boy’s head on Tuesday. The incident happened at Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya in Trilok Puri.
As the class went on, the fan fell on Harsh’s head who was then given first aid care and was soon rushed to a hospital.
Fayaz Ahmad was teaching the kids in the classroom where the incident happened. Suddenly the fan fell on Harsh’s head. According to Fayaz, the fan did not make any sound and such a thing had never happened in the past as well.
Aaj Tak talked to the kids in that classroom. The kids told Aaj Tak that they were really scared after the fan fell down.
The incident left Harsh injured with a cut on his head.
Harsh’s uncle said that no teacher or the principal accompanied Harsh to the hospital. It was two school guards who took Harsh to Lal Bahadur Shastri hospital. There, doctors said that Harsh’s condition is serious and then he was referred to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital (GTB) hospital.
Harsh’s uncle told Aaj Tak that he comes from a poor family. He only earns Rs 9,000 a month. Apart from this, one of his daughters has cancer. In such a situation, they do not have money for Harsh’s treatment. He told that Harsh suffered serious injuries. His head’s CT scan has been done. However, the good thing is that now Harsh has regained consciousness.
Harsh’s uncle alleged that he never got permission to go inside the school. He could not see the conditions in which children study in the school. Harsh’s uncle said that the principal of the school or any teacher did not even meet Harsh’s relatives.
Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Manoj Tiwari held a press conference after the incident. Manoj Tiwari accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of making a multi-crore scam in the construction of a classroom of government schools.
AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj was also quick to slam Manoj Tiwari’s statement kicking-off a blame game.
