A Texas middle school teacher who burned a student when she put hand sanitizer on her hands and lit them as part of a science experiment has quit.

Granbury Police said they responded to Granbury Middle School on Friday “to a report of a student who had been burned on campus.”

Investigators have determined that a 37-year-old teacher “put hand sanitizer in the hands of a 12-year-old student and turned on the hand sanitizer as part of a science experiment,” police said. .

The experiment had been “done several times during the day with other students without incident”, according to the police. But the 12-year-old suffered possible third-degree burns to his hands. His condition was unknown Thursday.

The investigation into the incident will be submitted to the district attorney when it is complete, police said.

A declaration of the Granbury Independent School District said in a statement that the teacher involved in the incident had resigned and was no longer an employee of the district.

Granbury is about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
