One of the students even makes a comment that the motionless teacher might have died.
Shortly after the incident took place, the school’s administration held a conversation with all the students present as well as their parents.
According to reports, the drunk teacher has been dismissed from the school.
Netizen ‘Petr Derzin’ said: “What a stupid man, like he didn’t even think that any of his students would film it. Why did he have to show up drunk like that at work? He could have easily called in sick and continued his party.”
‘Alla Kadykova’ commented: “This is just awful, how could something like this happen in school? What if there was an emergency that day, a fire or something, how can a man like that save the kids?”
‘Evgeniy Orlov’ wrote: “If a handicraft teacher is in that kind of condition, I can only imagine how drunk the PT teacher must be!”
