TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a Michigan kindergartner collapsed and died while in Ohio on a school field trip to the Toledo Zoo.
Lucas County deputy coroner Dr. Diane Barnett says 6-year-old Nicholas Allore, of Temperance, Mich., had complained of pain in his belly earlier on Thursday, but it wasn't serious enough to keep him from going on the trip. Barnett tells The Blade of Toledo the boy had no history of medical problems.
The coroner's office tells The Associated Press an autopsy will be conducted Saturday.
The Blade quotes Bedford Public Schools Superintendent Ted Magrum as saying the child was one of about 50 kindergarten students from Smith Road Elementary School visiting the zoo. He says the district expresses sympathy and condolences to the family.
