438. SK Tohoi
SK Tohoi is a residential school located near Sungai Perias in Malaysia. In 2015 a number of boys was found dead less than a kilometer from they boarding school. They had escaped due to risk of severe punishment for acts not explained in the articles which covers the tragedy. The cause of deaths also don’t seem to have much interest by the authorities.
The death of five of the seven indigenous Orang Asli children caught media attention and it sparked an investigation into the conditions offered to the children with these ethnic origins.
It is safe to say that it could not have been fun to be at the school as a teenager. Well if the children survived to be a teenager at all.
