A boy was arrested after he stabbed his classmate with a chisel during a carpentry class, police in the United Kingdom said.
The 16-year-old was stabbed behind his ear by another student, who is also 16, during an argument in Prospects College in Southend.
Emergency workers were called to the scene, and the injured teen was transported by helicopter to be treated at the Royal London Hospital, located about 40 miles away.
The injured boy is said to be in stable condition.
It all began when one teen threw a piece of wood at another boy, and that boy retaliated by stabbing him with his chisel.
The accused teen was charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
