FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla.  — A Florida mother claims a teacher made her 4-year-old son unclog a dirty toilet with his bare hands.

Tiffany Huffman said the pre-kindergarten teacher at Rymfire Elementary School wanted to teach her son a lesson during the class bathroom time on Monday, WKMG Orlando reported. Huffman said the teacher claimed the 4-year-old clogged it before.

“The teacher said he used too much toilet paper and made him reach his hand in the toilet and grab out the toilet paper with his bare hands,” Huffman told WKMG Orlando.

“He felt like people were watching him have to do this. He was humiliated.”

Huffman said the teacher admitted to the act and said the toilet was clean, but she’s still furious about the incident.

“It’s endangering his health. I realized afterwards that there was cuts on his hands but like the bacteria, anything could get in on those cuts,” Hoffman told WKMG Orlando.

Flagler County School District released a statement saying it is launching an investigation and will determine if the teacher should be punished.
