Mother demands answers from school after her allergic son, 13, died 'because bullies flicked cheese into his face'


Quote:

The mother of a teenage pupil who died of a severe allergic reaction to cheese at school is demanding answers from bosses as to how it happened.

Karan Cheema, 13, became seriously ill at his school in Greenford, West London, in the middle of morning lessons.

Staff rushed to help the popular pupil, who was known to have allergies, but he died after being rushed to hospital.

It has been claimed Karan was 'forced to eat' the cheese but others have said it was 'flicked at his face' while his mother claimed the food was 'rubbed against his neck'.

Another boy was later arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

His mother Rina struggled to control her emotions as she demanded answers as to how her son, who led a normal life despite his allergies, had managed to become exposed to the cheese.
She claimed police and William Perkin C of E School kept her in the dark about the events which led to Karan's death on Sunday.
And she also urged schools to have a better understanding of allergens and appoint medically trained staff on site to handle emergencies.

We need to keep the focus of education on food allergies being life threatening medical conditions.
No one would think that it's funny to force a person with diabetes to eat a lot of sugar. No one would try to induce a heart attack...
There is NOTHING funny about bullying!
