A crowd gathered to watch the man being whipped in Aceh,
The criminal was seen by a medic following his collapse
During the whipping, the man pleaded for the punishment to stop and was briefly treated by a medic before the flogging restarted.
The teenager was arrested earlier this year on charges of molesting and raping a minor.
The paedophile was sentenced to 146 lashes, a serious punishment reserved for the most heinous of criminals.
Ivan Nanhhar Alavi, an official from the East Aceh prosecutor’s office, told reporters that “the maximum sentence is meant to be a deterrent.”
The punishment is dolled out as part of a version of Islamic religious law – known as Sharia – enforced in Aceh.
In September another man collapsed after receiving 52 lashes as punishment for raping a child.
The man, known only as Roni, was set to be caned 169 times but prosecutors postponed his punishment deeming him unfit to continue.
Following his collapse, he was immediately taken to a medical centre for treatment.
“When he was lashed 52 times, he was found on his right back there were heavy blisters, if he continued and was hit by the same beating, the blood vessels could burst and bleed,” one of the doctors said.
“It is better if we postpone it until the recovery is good and the convict can be punished again.”
