How much a little boys life worth? Certainly more than the dollar coin lodged in his throat. Confronted with a stressed child, shallow breathing, unable to talk or swallow, excessive drool and foaming at the mouth, concern for his immediate welfare overtakes anger. The school which is right opposite the hospital waited until the parent arrived , ten minutes away from the school. Luckily for the child he did not suffer any serious side effects after being rushed to a bigger hospital an hour away. The consequences could of been dire and it is fortunate they were not.
