I have witnessed many fights in schools here in Trinidad and I was always shocked how easy these kids lose their temper and they are ready to grab a knife or a bottle to kill someone!
A 17-year-old student of Cunupia High School was knifed in the chest during a classroom fight yesterday.
The Third Form pupil, Shane Sooknanan, underwent surgery at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope and was listed in serious condition last night.
The attacker, another 17-year-old, was in police custody yesterday.
The stabbing occurred at around 10.45 a.m., when Sooknanan and the suspect, a relative, were involved in a brawl witnessed by several other pupils.
The attacker allegedly pulled what police described as a kitchen knife from his bookbag and stabbed Sooknanan once in the chest....
