An investigation team has been formed by local education, public security and healthcare authorities after a 7-year-old girl died at a martial arts school in Dengfeng, Central China's Henan province, two days after she enrolled, Red Star News reported.
The girl, surnamed Deng, was sent to Xiaolong Martial Arts School on Sunday by her parents. On Monday, they went to the school to check on her and went back to their home in Wu'an, North China's Hebei province.
Deng Haichao, the father, said he received a call from the school at about 10 am on Tuesday, saying his daughter tumbled and was sent to the hospital for emergency treatment. Not long after, the school said she died.
Deng Haichao arrived at the school at 3 pm and found that the surveillance camera closest to the site of the incident was broken. "The wire was unplugged," he said. The school later gave him a video clip. "The surveillance camera was far from my daughter. It seems like someone pushed and kicked her," Deng said.
