9-Year-Old Girl Denied Inhaler During Coughing Fit, Per School Policy

WEST JORDAN, UT (FOX NEWS INSIDER)- A 9-year-old girl was denied her inhaler during a coughing fit at school in West Jordan, Utah, because staff were not notified of the child's prescription, Jordan School District officials said Monday.

Emma Gonzales obtained an inhaler over the weekend after a coughing fit landed her in the emergency room, according to Fox 13.

On Monday, the fourth grader was hit with another coughing spell in class at Columbia Elementary.

When Emma took her inhaler out to use it, her teacher sent her to the office, where staff took the inhaler, even though she was coughing so hard she threw up on her pants.
