Teen suspended after assisting girl having asthma attack
KILLEEN, Texas — A 15-year-old Texas boy has served a day's suspension for carrying a friend having an asthma attack to the school nurse.
The eighth-grader at Gateway Middle School in Killeen was reprimanded because a teacher told him not to leave class.
KCEN-TV reports the girl had trouble breathing Tuesday and fell to the floor. The teacher contacted the nurse and awaited an email response.
A statement from the teacher says the boy said an expletive about not waiting for email and carried his friend to the nurse. KWTX-TV reports the boy said he feared the girl would die. She later texted saying she's OK.
