Mom: Teacher slammed door, cut off boy’s finger

A 9-year-old student in the Harrisburg School District had to be taken to the hospital after a substitute teacher accidentally cut off part of his finger, his mother said.

Tanaya Scott's son is in special education in the fourth grade at the Marshall School. She said the school called her Tuesday and said her son had a gaping wound.

Scott said she later learned that while the teacher was taking another child out of the classroom, she slammed the door, cutting off her son's finger at the top joint.

Scott said the principal called her to discuss the incident, but she's still upset.

The superintendent told abc27 news “the incident is under investigation. Right now, it's considered an accident.”
