Boy allegedly forced to clean toilet bowl with hands at South Carolina school

JASPER COUNTY, SC (KTRK) -- The mother of a 7-year-old in South Carolina wants two school employees fired after they allegedly made her son clean a toilet with his bare hands.

The incident is said to have happened at Royal Live Oaks Academy in Jasper County, South Carolina.

The boy's mother says he put too much paper in the toilet and it clogged up.

The boy said a teacher's aide made him take out the tissue with his hands even though there were also feces inside the bowl.

Council Chairwoman Barbara Clark said, "That is wrong. That is so ridiculous. And every time I think about it, it makes me sick."

The boy's mother immediately called the school.

At first, both the aide and the teacher denied the allegations, but other students said it did happen.

They were both suspended, but have since returned to work.
