A 14-year-old lost his left eye after another student struck him with a piece of wood that had a pointed edge.
Delon Sancho, of St. Mary's High School, underwent surgery at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation.
The boy said that he was walking down a stairway in the school on Wednesday when he felt something hit him hard in the eye.
“When I put me hand on me eye, I feel the thing inside hanging down and it was bleeding,” the boy said.
He said that the boy who threw the wood is a troublemaker in the school.
The injured boy's father, Compton Sancho, said the teen's mom, who is overseas, fainted upon hearing the news. Sancho said a teacher called him at about 16:10hrs to tell him what had transpired.
He arrived at the hospital just as his son was going into surgery.
The man said he asked a teacher who was at the hospital whether the school had called the police.
However, the teacher did not know, and Sancho went to his son's school, where he ensured that the police were contacted.
Two teachers, Sancho, and the attacker's aunt made a report.
Sancho said that according to the last information he received, the boy who injured his son was placed on $10,000 bail.
“The boy that throw the wood at my son said that he go fuh throw de wood at another boy, and the boy duck, and it hit me son. Are the students at that school children or are they fighters?” Sancho asked.
Sancho said he has often observed the students of the school exhibiting wayward, and sometimes violent, behaviour.
