Tens of thousands of children, mostly boys, are paddled every year in US schools. About two dozen or so suffer significant harm requiring a trip to the ER or even hospitalization. Fainting during a paddling is very uncommon, but it still happens from time to time.<br />
I think it mostly happens to kids with undiagnosed medical conditions.

Yes! One incident that is easy to find online is 15-year-old Trey Clayton of Mississippi.....(majorly a redneck state).....in March 2011.....(not that long ago).....fainted after a paddling, fracturing his jaw & shattering five teeth! He was hospitalized & had to have liquified food through a straw for weeks. His jaw was wired shut. He had no history of fainting.<br />
<br />
After the injury, instead of calling 911, the paddler called his mother to come pick him up, but not telling her why. He waited for half an hour.<br />

It is interesting to read the judge's decision in refusing to dismiss the case. I guess savagery is getting harder to get away with, even in the south. I was not able to find the final outcome of the case.<br />

Does anyone know the final outcome of this lawsuit? I believe I read the parents were suing for $750,000.<br />

The plaintiff (Trey Clayton) was 15 years old at the time of the assault. The defendents in the case were Jerome Martin, assistant principal, who was the "paddler". Malone was also named as defendent. He was the principal at the time. He was named for failure to train his employees in the administration of corporal punishment. There was also some talk in the lawsuit about a person named Walker. The school district where this occurred was Tate County School District (TCSD) in Mississippi, which the judge stated is "not new to the paddling rodeo"! Evidently, TCSD has been in hot water before due to their reckless beating of students. The lawyer handling the case for Trey Clayton was Joseph Murray II of Ripley, Mississippi. <br />
