Household takes legal action against school district after 7-year-old loses part of his finger in class

(WDIV/CNN) –

A family has actually submitted a lawsuit against a Detroit school district after their child lost part of his finger in class.

Camilla Barnes said a frustrated instructor at Henderson Academy knocked a door, which caught the finger of her 7-year-old son Jason Brandom.

“He is missing now a part of his finger. He’s never going to be what he was previously,” Barnes informed WDIV.

The household contends in the lawsuit versus the Detroit Public School Neighborhood District that Jason’s first-grade instructor kicked him out of the class and required him to rest on the floor. When Jason tried entering the door again, the upset instructor slammed the door, severing his fingertip.

“You should not be knocking doors. If you’re that disappointed, you shouldn’t even be dealing with kids if you are that disappointed because this is the item. My kid now has an amputated finger,” Barnes stated.

Barnes stated the school never ever called an ambulance and she needed to take a ride-share from the school to the medical facility. Once at the ER, that’s where she found part of her son’s finger was gone.

“When they unwrapped it and I saw the bone standing out, I was like ‘Oh my God, his finger is gone,'” Barnes said.

Jason’s mama worked with an attorney after, she declares, the district took no action against the teacher nor used an apology.

“And putting policies and procedures that something like this does not occur once again,” Attorney Jonathan Marko said.

The district stated it has not received the suit yet, and it’s not talking about pending litigation.
