When a teacher at East Junior High Middle School in West Memphis, Arkansas, collapsed on a classroom floor, most of the students rushed to his side.

The teacher had a minor medical emergency and fainted. He is expected to fully recover from the incident.
Parents of other students were shocked by the student's actions. Speaking to a local news crew, a classmate stated, "If one of her family members passed out, she wouldn't want to have them on the news...I mean, on Facebook."
Because the student broke a school rule prohibiting cellphone use in classrooms, posted the image online and made a false statement about the teacher "popping pills," the school has suspended her for three days.
