Little Girl Dies After On School Playground After Eating Peanuts



An elementary school is being investigated by police after a seven-year-old pupil died from an allergic reaction to peanuts.

Ammaria Johnson, a first grade student at Hopkins Elementary School in Chesterfield County, Virginia, died after suffering the reaction on the first day back after the Christmas holidays.

She complained about shortness of breath and had broken out in hives during a recess break on Monday before being treated by the school’s nurse.

The youngster then went into cardiac arrest, which her family said was caused by her coming into contact with a peanut product.

Although it is not clear where or when Ammaria may have eaten a peanut-based product, her devastated mother said she tried to leave an Epipen with school staff in case of a reaction, but was told to keep it at home instead.

  1. The shool the mother to keep the Epipen at home? That is not acceptable and they should be held liable for this baby’s death.

  2. Wow. How could the mother think it was acceptable what the school said to leave the Epipen at home when peanut products could be in lots of foods unbeknownst to kids/adults.

    Furthermore, the discussion with the Epipen should’ve been discussed with the school nurse as well and the child’s physician could’ve played an important part in justifying why an Epipen school be at the school.

    Its unthinkable to image a school turning down a reason to NOT keep medicine or a medical device at school that could save your child’s life.

    I would’ve had them to put it in writing because now the school is going to say they never had that conversation with the parent to they will not be held liable for this tragedy .

    You cannot trust the school’s today . I learned that from day one.

    A child done too soon. As parent, we cannot just take NO for an answer when it comes to our child’s health and education because the end results of not standing up and standing for something is everlasting devastation.

  3. It’s an awesome article in support of all the web visitors; they will obtain benefit from it I am sure.|
