A horribly sad story recently made headlines around the world. Now, more details are coming in after a coroner has spoken about.
According to reports, a young boy has died after one of his classmates "flicked" cheese at him. The boy suffered a severe allergic reaction from the cheese and passed away. He was only 13-years-old.
"Karanbir Cheema, 13, died after having a severe reaction at his school in west London on 28 June 2017. A specialist doctor previously told an inquest the death was 'unprecedented.' Coroner Mary Hassell said the boy who flicked cheese taken from a friend's baguette was 'simply not thinking,'" according to the BBC.
The cheese reportedly landed on the boy's neck. He was immediately treated by school officials. It has also been revealed that he had allergies to wheat, gluten, egg, milk and tree nuts.
"Karanbir was taken to hospital in a life-threatening condition and died almost two weeks later at Great Ormond Street of post-cardiac arrest syndrome. Ms. Hassell called the school's healthcare provision for Karanbir 'inadequate' and said a contributing factor in his death was the fact his allergy action plan was not included in the school's care plan or medical box," reported the BBC.
Now, his mother is speaking out about the situation. She hopes this sets an example for other school's so other children, and their parents, don't have to suffer tragedies like these as well.
"I think it would help a lot of children out there, whatever happened to my son, if the schools, the institutions, hospital, paramedics, were to become aware of how serious allergies are. My son was mature, he knew himself how fast to react. His words were at school: 'Please help me or I'm going to die'. That says it all," Rina Cheema said.
Please join us in praying for this young boy's family during this awful time.
