Brain-Dead Elementary School Child Choked on School Lunch, Administrators May Be Responsible

As the Daily News and the Post reports, last Wednesday afternoon at P.S. 250 in Williamsburg, 7-year-old N.E. was sitting down to lunch. She was eating a sandwich and began to choke. Her mother said that, on previous occasions, her daughter had complained to her that teachers had rushed her during lunch to finish her meal. As N.E. choked, the school authorities called N.E.'s mother, who dispatched her brother, N.E.'s uncle, to the school. He found N.E. on the "lying on the floor of a school hallway, covered in blood, surrounded by confused school staffers who wouldn't touch the girl." An EMT who was flagged down (and later was suspended from his job being flagged down), found N.E. blue and cleared her airway. The EMT thinks she had been choking for at least five minutes before he responded, and that "people were screaming, but no one was doing anything." N.E. is now on life support, and reports are mixed as to whether she'll survive.
