That is so vague ...... I mean, you could read into it that one teen did something to cause anaphylaxis in a food allergic classmate, and they ended up dying.  That is how I take it.  But, there are no real details.  I think there needs to be a lot more to that story.... and will be interested in knowing how things develop. 

If indeed it turns out that the facts come out and it is that way, then I also will be interested to see how things are prosecuted and sentenced.

I'd like to forward it to the school in Toronto that the grads "prank" was smearing pb around the school knowing there were several kids in the school with allergy including at least one special needs student.

Hopefully that link will work.  A few more details, though not many.  But, cheese or dairy looks like what the allergy was to, and the incident looks to be from bullying.  Which, isn't surprising to me.  Sadly.

I saw in another news paper on twitter that a boy slipped cheese in to his sandwich.

Such a horrible thing to do.

It appears his meds were kept in the office. I wonder how long from when he realized he needed them u tip he got to the office, and then how long before they were accessed and administered. (Doesn't say whether they were locked up, or who was able to administer.)
