A Cedar Hill ISD elementary student has died after she choked on a piece of food during lunchtime last week.
The Highland Hills student, who was in Pre-K, was eating her lunch when she suddenly started choking. Teachers immediately took action and she was rushed to Methodist Charlton Medical Center in Dallas. The girl passed away shortly after.
In a letter sent from the CHISD Superintendent, parents were notified of the incident and informed that grief counselors would be available for students.
