The mother of the student who was electrocuted on Thursday has complained about the safety of the high school he attends.
The 14-year-old student received an electric shock on Thursday morning when he went to turn on the lights in the school’s toilets.
The boy was rushed to Nicosia general hospital and after he complained of headaches was taken to Makarios hospital for further treatment.
The doctor at Makarios hospital said the child had suffered a small burn but his condition is not serious.
The high-school student is expected to be released later on Friday.
His mother said that the wires of the light switch were exposed and that caused her son’s electrocution.
The case is being investigated by the education ministry.
