Sharnaath Kumar, was found with his eyes were open and he was bleeding from the nose, Malaysian Digest reports.

A canteen worker, who wanted to be known only as Hamat, said he saw the teacher scream when she found her son sprawled on his back in the back seat, frothing at the mouth.

“He had stopped breathing. The teachers tried to revive the boy but to no avail,” Hamat said. “The teacher (mother) collapsed against the side of her vehicle, crying.”

The mother is a primary school teacher in her 40s, usually dropped Sharnaath Kumar to kindergarten before heading for work: however, she was pressed for time that day and rushed straight to school.

Investigors claim she arrived at the school, Bandar Baru Uda at 7am, she switched off the engine and proceeded to the teachers’ room and class.

It was understood that Sharnaath Kumar was asleep in the multipurpose vehicle at the time.

 Kumar was rushed to Johor Specialist Hospital in Jalan Abdul Samad by a 39-year-old school general worker and   teachers. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. A post-mortem revealed he had died in the vehicle.

No charges against the mother have been filed at this time.
