The case of a special education teacher from Maryland, USA, was caught masturbating during a video call on Zoom with his students.
He insists it was all a horrible mistake, believing that the online course was over.
Marc Schack spoke to a local media outlet on Wednesday saying he did not know how,what he did was caught on camera.
"I thought I had quit the app when the lesson ended", he said, "I had no idea I was still in Zoom. Why should I do this; It's my job. I had no idea that Zoom was still open ", claimed.
A video 13 seconds went up on social media, where he shows him getting up from his chair, να απομακρύνεται κάπως από την οθόνη και να αυτοϊκανοποιείται.
The teacher has been made available until the incident is clarified. He insists that everything was "my fault, a simple mistake. I am human, It was my fault. I'm not abnormal or anything. I believed I was in the privacy of my own home ".
A spokesman for the local police department confirmed that the teacher was being checked, without, however, saying anything more.
