Last week a 5 year old choked on her school dinner at a local school, today we recieved a letter from Ds' school telling us that she has sadly died, Herts CC have removed the food she choked on from their menus and given talks to the children about this.
So sad

what food was it?

the other kids at the school must be distraught. we considered the school for dd1 but would've had to change our religious views.

we weren't informed what it was, just that it has been removed from the menus.

Did they not have someone who could do First Aid at the school? What was it she choked on, do you know? How very, very sad.

the teachers and staff gave first aid on the scene, and 999 was called..

she choked last monday, the sun said she died on weds. How awful and tragic. she is the same age as my dd1 and mieows dd1. she hasnt been named so we dont know who it is, or if we know the family at all.

How awful . Poor little girl, and her family.

I remember a girl at my infant school being rushed to hospital at lunchtime - some roast lamb became tangled and trapped in her throat - very very frightening. Tha ambulance crew managed to save her, after staff had tried.

wasn't it daytime queen trisha who recently did the heimlich manoeuvre in a restaurant?

poor poor girl I feel for the family...

I read it in today's Daily Mail - I think her name was Hannah.

Ds keepsa asking about it, I think the school should have informed us before telling the children this terrible news.

How awful.

Wonder what it was? Must have been pretty SERIOUS if trained first aiders weren't able to help.

Very sad indeed.

sparklymieow Tue 03-May-05 21:24:15
