Personally i went to this school and i had this teacher, and i can say without a doubt he would never ever do this. The student 18 now was 17 at the time does not know the danger of electrical?

"I was talking about my fantasy baseball team with one student, and then the next thing I know, there was a commotion," Kelley said. "I heard, you know, an 'Ouch!' and I look, and there's Kyle going to the ground."

The student suffered "brain damage?" That must have been rather minor.

The kid decided to electrocute himself in class. If he's that stupid, you can't blame the teacher.

Oh yea many who comment in nh has stated that... well he already had brain damage before the shock. Here another interstring fact after kyle was getting beter out of hospital and talk to the cops and told them it was NOT KELLY FAULT.

The world is sure changing. Alligator clips on his chest?

Way back when I was in a High School Electronics class, this was how we ended
every class. The Teacher had a hand-crank-generator form an old-old telephone....

We'd all link hands (including the Teacher) and the people on the ends would each
put a hand on one of the terminals on that generator. Someone would start to crank
it slowly....and the class was the closed circuit...and the electricity would start to
flow through us.

The cranking would slowly get faster & faster, increasing the charge....until someone
would let go....breaking the circuit. Then we'd all laugh, & maybe do it again, & then
head off to our next class. By the end of the year, we could all handle quit the charge,
as nobody wanted to be "that guy" who was the first to let go. Nobody sued anyone.

There is a whole bunch of info lacking in the article. Like the voltage and amperage involved. Sounds like the brain damage occurred long before high school.

Sounds to me like it's a family trait...

they were trying to figure that out before i am sure its in another news forum but i don't feel like looking for it. i agree the brain damage is a long history.

I can only hope that the suit gets thrown out, as it sure seems to be without merit to me.

The article says it was plugged into an outlet.....most are 110 AC....
Only someone already brain damaged would do that

and it seems to me that protected circuits are only protected from going to ground not from black to white with you in between

Back in those days $million settlements were unheard of.

This is just a cash grab for enterprising parents.
