Grilled cheese sandwich suspected in young boy's death

Grilled cheese sandwich suspected in young boy's death

Elijah went into anaphylactic shock, according to the GoFundMe, and was taken to the pediatric emergency room at Harlem Hospital, where he died.

According to a GoFundMe page, his family believes that Silvera was served the sandwich "despite them [the school] knowing and having documented that he has a severe allergy to dairy".

Here's why we need it: at this moment, it is unclear where responsibility for Elijah's death will fall between the pre-k and the hospital itself. Elijah's family and friends want to find out exactly what happened to cause his death and say a third-party examination will ensure a full picture.

The Administration for Children's Services will have staff at the center today assisting families in finding alternative programs for their children to attend, the official said, adding that confidentiality laws preclude investigators from commenting further on the probe.

The Health Department said it has closed the school on Wednesday (Nov 8) for inadequate supervision of a child and for failing to follow its own written safety plan. The family also wants to know what protocols were followed. About 40 percent of children with food allergies have experienced a severe allergic reaction such as anaphylaxis. "In the meantime, we're closing the Center for Family Services and continuing to aggressively investigate what happened and whether the facility could have done something differently to prevent this tragedy", a statement by the New York City Health Department read. Those figures mean that roughly two children in each of the country's classrooms have a food allergy, making awareness of allergies increasingly important and lifesaving in schools, notes Food Allergy Research and Education, the nonprofit advocacy organiSation.
