Kindergarten Teacher Gets Arrested For Allegedly Putting Poison in Students Food- WORLD OF BUZZ 2

One parent told the newspaper that he rushed to the hospital after receiving a call from the school to find doctors had already pumped his child's stomach to prevent high levels of toxicity in his blood.

The arrested teacher is suspected of having added sodium nitrite to their meal, although a motive for the alleged action wasn't immediately clear, the Jiaozuo city police said, according to The Associated Press. The other 15 children have already been discharged. "There were other children who were also throwing up, and they looked pale", the parent said to the Chinese state-run tabloid Global Times.

The substance is used in the curing meats but can be toxic when ingested in high amounts. At 3 grams or more, the compound can be lethal, according to a warning from a food and drug authority in southwestern China's Sichuan province following a 2016 nitrite poisoning incident.

In addition to vomiting, nitrite poisoning can cause other symptoms including headache, dizziness, coma, and respiratory failure.
