3-year-old with ‘documented’ dairy allergy dies after school allegedly gave him grilled cheese

A three-year-old boy with a dairy allergy is dead after he was allegedly given a grilled cheese sandwich at a federally-funded pre-kindergarten school in Harlem.

Authorities are trying to determine whether his death was connected to his health condition.
Elijah Silvera was in class at the Seventh Avenue Center for Family Services on Nov. 3, when an adult allegedly gave him the sandwich, despite the boy having a “documented” dairy allergy, WPIX reported.

Silvera went into anaphylactic shock after he ate the sandwich, and was taken to hospital where he later died, according to a GoFundMe page whose details were confirmed by ABC7.

WPIX reported that a family member said school officials called Silvera’s mother about the incident, and that the mother — not an ambulance — was the one who took him to hospital.

Silvera is survived by his mother Dina, his father Thomas and his brother Sebastian, according to the GoFundMe page.

“Our family is immersed in our grief, but we are also facing an overwhelming list of financial and practical matters,” the page read.

The GoFundMe had surpassed its goal of $18,000 as of Wednesday night; it said the money would go toward cooked meals for Silvera’s family, financial support for time taken off work and funeral expenses. ... ed-cheese/
