Police announced this school boy had died of heart failure caused by heatstroke.
The teacher was too careless to notice that the boy felt sick.
ご冥福を。

Poor kid:(. That teacher should be locked away. Well, even if he died of a heatstroke, the teacher had no right to hit him like that.

I think it's important to note the incident is being written up in Japanese newspapers, it is being investigated and I don't think it is indicative of normal treatment of Japanese students.
