The story gained traction when a friend of the parents posted it on Facebook.
News of the abuse was posted on Facebook by the user NooZap Pawornruj (Link to Facebook post in Sources section below). The post said:
“My friend’s child was injured like this. The school delayed taking action in investigation. Is this so that evidence could disappear? The school asked not to post it in the parent group on Line. I’m shaking it. Who did this? I’ll carry an ax and go to the school to settle this.”
The parents of the child, Ms. A (alias), and her husband, took the 3 year old son to the hospital to treat his injuries. The mother revealed that on February 16th, she picked him up from the nursery in Nonthaburi, took him home, and gave him a bath. The body didn’t want to take his shirt off.
The mother saw the injuries, took photos, and asked the school what happened. The teacher replied and said the cause was unknown to them as they’d recently switched shifts with another teacher. The mother went to the school to review CCTV footage.
The teacher handed over the CCTV footage the next day on February 17th. But when the mother reviewed the footage, it seemed edited with some missing time in the footage. The mother reported the issue to the police so they could investigate further.
The school asked the mother not to share the incident on the Line group. The mother’s friend made a post on Facebook to get the word out about the incident.
The school made an appointment to settle matters with the mother. They asked she bring the receipt of the hospital bill so they could pay the costs. The mother asked to review the CCTV footage again.
The school said they want 1 month to investigate the matter. If they find other evidence, they’ll let the parents know within 1 week or sooner.
The mother said she is worried other kids will be hurt in this way.
When the child was questioned, he said a friend was the one who hit him. But the mother doesn’t believe that, as the injuries appear to have been caused by an adult, not a young kid playing.
The school is reportedly a famous nursery in Nonthaburi. Further investigation is pending.

My take: These school abuse cases are hitting the news nearly every day now. What do school administrators think? They can hide the truth? With the ability to get a story out with social media, the truth gets out no matter what.
