School boy beheaded by signpost after sticking head out of bus

Didn't you see the part that says "WATCH: Teacher describes how pupil was decapitated"?
Indeed. And by actually watching the video, I gleaned that it featured a deputy principal (not a teacher) who repoted nothing about a student's being decapitated. He merely said that a student hit his head on a utility pole and was believed to have died instantly.

Sorry, I linked the one article which didn't point out the decapitation. Here are some which do:

Not really. The Daily Sun article is completely sourced from the News24 article, which made no mention of a decapitation. And the IOL report is just a brief video report that was obviously based on very little information and simply mentioned the word "decapitation" once.
