SANTIAGO.- A group of eleventh grade students at Colegio Pierre Teilhard de Chardin in La Florida, was shocked today after witnessing one of their 16 year-old classmates pull out a knife and stab their teacher, Loreto Villaseca, following an argument.
According to preliminary reports, the incident occurred after the teacher called attention to the student during English class. The teen allegedly reacted violently when the teacher asked him to be quiet.
Although it is not known how many times the teacher was stabbed, reports indicate that she did receive immediate aid from her colleagues at the school, located at 6596 Calle Alonso de Ercilla in the aforementioned municipality.
The woman was then taken to the Instituto de Seguridad del Trabajador medical facility, where she was diagnosed with a serious wound to her back.
