According to the Granbury Police Department, the 37-year-old instructor used hand sanitizer on the student’s hand and lit it on fire as part of the scientific experiment.
This was apparently done with other pupils many times during the day without problem, however the student in question had possibly 3rd-degree burns on his hands. According to Granbury Lt. Russell Grizzard, the event is under investigation and will be presented to the District Attorney’s Office for consideration.

A GMS teacher has resigned and is no longer an employee of the school district. This follows a student injury on Friday during a science class experiment. Campus officials have turned this matter over to law enforcement/proper authorities for further investigation.
When the investigation into the event is finished, police will submit it to the district attorney.
The youngster was rushed to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth for treatment before being moved to Parkland Memorial Hospital’s Burn Center in Dallas. Further information concerning the child’s burns was unavailable.
Third-degree burns, according to Grizzard, may be fairly dangerous. “Right now, I don’t know the degree of the student’s burns; we’ll learn more when we speak with them again and obtain medical data.”
