An ambulance was dispatched to Agnes Barden Elementary School after a first grader was hurt Tuesday morning.
The 6-year-old boy suffered an electrical burn, said Stephanie Hartley, spokeswoman for the Bibb County school system.
They were sitting down reading a story for story time, Hartley said. The teacher was reading a story and he stuck some staples into an electrical socket and burned his three middle fingers.
The accident happened at about 10:15 a.m. at the school on Anderson Drive off Bloomfield Road.
The child was released to his mother, Hartley said.
