THE Junta has agreed to pay compensation to the family of a four-year-old boy who died after getting trapped in a rubbish bin.

The tragic accident happened on 25 April 2006 when the unsupervised child suffocated in the playground of Jacaranda school, in Sevilla.

The Education Council concluded that the incident showed “the poor working of a public service”, and could have been avoided with greater care.

Now, the Junta will pay the boy’s family 115,187 € in compensation after accepting its responsibility for his death.
