Lawsuit: Child died because Tampa school waited to call 911

TAMPA — A 6-year-old child died at Seminole Heights Elementary School after he stopped breathing and school staff waited too long to call 911, according to a lawsuit expected to be filed Friday in federal court in Tampa.

The Maher Law Firm, which also represented the family of Isabella Herrera, the Hillsborough child who died following a ride home in 2012 on a school bus, is representing the family of Keith Coty, who died Jan. 17, 2014.

Hillsborough County School Board Meeting: 2/8/22@4 PM

901 East Kennedy Boulevard
Tampa Fl, 33602

In the Tampa Bay area school districts are entrusted with multi billion dollar budgets that directly impact over 500,000 students, 50,000 employees and thousands of vendors and service providers.

Elected school boards in each of the counties are tasked with overseeing these dollars and providing oversight.

Ultimately, however,it falls upon the citizenry to monitor the conduct and expenditures of public dollars and the quality of education being provided to children.

Reports of many children struggling to attain a quality education have been featured prominently in the local media and underscores the need for parents, family members and all stakeholders to actively participate in the educational process.

Please consider attending an upcoming school board meeting to add your voice to the call for a high quality education for all children.
