A 14-year-old student at a school in Boston is accused of throwing boiling hot water on one of his teachers earlier this month.

The incident, which occurred at McKinley Middle School on St. Mary’s Street in Allston on May 5, resulted in the teacher bringing herself to the hospital, according to a police report, after the school’s principal failed to call 911 on her behalf.

According to the police report, the teacher had told her student not to use a textbook to assist in microwaving ramen noodles, as the book would be ruined in the microwave. Following a disagreement, the student proceeded to stand up from his seat and pour his cup of boiling hot ramen noodles on the teacher, according to the police report.

The student had used the hot water side of a bubbler rather than a microwave to initially heat his noodles, the police report stated.

The teacher, who arrived at the hospital in “excruciating pain,” she said, had swelling and minor burns on her left cheek and redness inside of her left ear when she arrived at the hospital, per the report. The teacher had been advised by the school nurse to seek additional medical attention after being initially treated, she said.

The student, who is being charged as a juvenile, has been charged with aggravated assault.

Five days after the incident, the teacher said she was still experiencing stinging in her neck, face, left ear and left eye.
