`A substitute teacher in Lake County, Fla., was terminated and banned from teaching in the county after he ripped out a student’s insulin pump during class apparently thinking it was a ringing cell phone, according to a Local 6 News report.
Officials said a ninth-grade student at East Ridge High School, who is a Type I diabetic, was in class Monday when his insulin pump began to beep, indicating he was low on insulin. [..]
School officials said Maline then grabbed the device, thinking it was a cell phone beeping and detached the tube that connects the insulin pump to the student’s leg.
The student went to the school’s clinic and had the tube reinserted.’
