A viral video of a teacher dragging a protesting student to the swimming pool drew anger among netizens who slammed the teacher for physical abuse.

It appeared that the student did not want to join the swimming lessons but the angry professor, later identified as Denny Peterson, would not hear of it. Explaining that she just had her hair done that morning for an event in the evening, the student wished to be spared the swimming lessons because the chlorinated water could ruin her locks.

Nevertheless, the professor believed his lessons are more important than the girl’s hair and event, so he bodily dragged her to the pool! The poor student repeatedly screamed that her top was falling but the teacher continued to drag her.

Other students could be seen helping the young girl.

The 14-year-old girl later told the media that she was humiliated by the experience. The family is considering a lawsuit against Peterson.
