(FOX News) - A Texas middle school student was suspended after sharing her inhaler with an asthmatic student who was gasping for breath on Tuesday. She now faces up to 30 days at alternative school, following a hearing on Friday.
Indiyah Rush, 12, may also face a month in an alternative school as part of her punishment, Fox4 reported. Rush, a A/B honor roll student, was in gym class at Schrade Middle School in Garland, Texas when her classmate began wheezing and gasping for breath.
“Asthma gets worse by every second,” Rush, who has had the disease since she was 5, told Fox4.com.
Rush offered the girl her inhaler and the two were sent to the principal’s office, where Rush was punished with several days of at-home suspension and 30 days of alternative school.
