Gym Teacher Chokes Kid During Dodgeball Game



dodge-wrench-dodge-ballIf you can dodge a gym teacher, than you can dodge a ball. If you can’t do either, you’re this child from Daniel Webster Elementary School in New York.

The school’s substitute gym teacher Daniel Sanabria has been charged with third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child after he allegedly put a kid in a chokehold during a dodgeball game.

The kid argued that he wasn’t out, but Sanabria disagreed.

According to Detective Thomas Leak, “It appears the substitute gym teacher antagonized the whole situation. The kid was walking away, and the gym teacher started calling him things like ‘a big baby’ and ‘crybaby.’ ”

It was at this point that the kid turned back and threw a punch at Sanabria, who according to witnesses then put the child in a sleeper-style chokehold.

Following the choking, he was then taken to a hospital after complaining of neck and back pain. That will happen when a grown man treats a 10-year-old like he’s in the WWE. Needless to say, school officials have said that Sanabria will not be returning to the school, even though he claims he was acting in self-defense.

    What a horrible photo. How misleading the story and coverage. Let's be human here. How do those condemning sleep at night? Do you know this amazing man? He wouldn't hurt a fly, much less a child. I've known this unbelievably giving father for 14 years.

    Dan Sanabria has been – and still is a guardian angel to my three children. He has been on every single one of my children's emergency forms for every single one of our schools, for years now. I cannot imagine ANYONE I would trust more with my boys. I'm sure he is on many emergency forms. Ask around.
    Dan Sanabria is an adoring father. His children come before all else. Let me say that again – before all else. Shame on anyone who is not questioning the facts here. I am shocked with this alleged report, and I can only imagine- that this may very well have been the one child whom a forgiving heart like Dan's could not connect with. With this one moment of misunderstanding and one moment of disconnect, no one should run to condemn. Shame on all of us who allow the media to color the truth. This forgiving man deserves us to question. We need to be human again.
