The police informed that the child was taken to hospital in good condition.

The teacher then took the backpack and gave it to the security guards who found a Glock 19 pistol inside, prosecutors said during the court hearing.
The woman’s lawyer, Roger Clark, admitted that the gun should have been closed, not just put under the bed. But he said: “It was not something he planned or did voluntarily.”
