Child with dairy allergy dies after school allegedly gave him grilled cheese

Child with dairy allergy dies after school allegedly gave him grilled cheese”

"At this moment, it is unclear where responsibility for Elijah's death will fall, between the pre-K and the hospital itself", the page read.

Little Elijah Silvera went into anaphylactic shock Friday, Nov. 3, after an adult at the Seventh Avenue Center for Family Services gave him a grilled cheese, CBS New York reported.

"Something so simple could have been avoided if they would have just followed - and paid attention to my son's needs", Thomas told ABC News.

When a frantic Thomas Silvera arrived to see his 3-year-old son at Harlem Hospital Center, the sight of his wife offered reassurance that everything was alright. "As we ease into this unthinkable reality and say goodbye to our sweet, joyful Elijah - and our hopes and dreams for all he would become - we thank you for your support". "They should be shut down and whoever did that, whoever is in charge of this program should definitely face criminal charges, I think". "But as I got closer, she fell to the floor".

"I'm (angry) that this had to happen to my son, but the next thing I don't want is it to happen to somebody else's son or daughter", he said on the "Good Morning America" show.

Elijah Silvera was highly allergic to dairy, and preschool officials had been made aware of this allergy.

"I kept praying and praying and praying and was like, 'This can not happen, ' " he said.

The site also houses a universal prekindergarten program, part of Mayor Bill de Blasio's effort to provide free prekindergarten to all New York City 4-year-olds, but Elijah was not a UPK student.

"There is nothing more important than the safety of our children and we are deeply saddened by this tragedy".

The most prevalent allergies among children include peanuts, dairy and shellfish. "We carry this emergency pack that will have Benadryl, that will have Tylenol, that will have his EpiPen".

According to ABC, the FDNY says the preschool did not call 911 during the time of the boy's emergency.

A GoFundMe page created by a family member described what happened to Elijah, who was allergic to dairy products.
