A 15-year-old girl died ten days after her boss made her do 100 squats as punishment for arriving late to work.
The Chinese schoolgirl died from respiratory failure, according to The Sun.
Her employer admitted that she had been made to do 100 squats, but denied that it had taken place as punishment.
Her father argued that the squatting incident was punishment for being late to work at the end of July.
“My daughter was not feeling well after and bought some medicine. But she cannot move her legs,” her father said.
In the days after the incident she was unable to lift up her hands, and later collapsed, started to vomit and became paralysed.
Despite being admitted into the intensive care unit of a local hospital, she passed away on August 7. Doctors notes indicate that she had been diagnosed with Guillain–Barré syndrome, but did not say whether this was connected to the squatting incident.
