Fish smell could have caused boy's fatal allergic reaction

NEW YORK, The New York Police Department says an 11-year-old boy died on New Year's Day - after a possible allergic reaction to fish. "I love you", Steven Jean-Pierre, the father of Cameron, the boy who died, told the New York Daily News. That's when the family called 911.

Steven carried out CPR on his son before Camron was rushed to Brookdale University Hospital Medical Center but medics were unable to save him.

A city medical examiner will confirm the cause of death but police do not believe any suspicious circumstances were involved. According to the NY Post, however, authorities do not now suspect foul play. However, when the child began to smell fish cooking, he began gasping for air and eventually fell unconscious.

"It just so happens they was cooking it when we came in", Steven told the New York Post.

"We knew he had an allergy... but usually, he don't get nothing that severe like that", he said.

Rashida Tlaib vowed that the new Democratic-controlled House would be focusing on ousting President Donald Trump from office. Nancy Pelosi , 78, stood in front of the US Congress surrounded by her grandchildren and the grandchildren of other members.

Speaking through tears, father Steven told the New York Post his child gave him two kisses as he struggled to stay conscious. "Anywhere you see him, you see the son", Marlin Fraser, 47, a neighbor, told the Daily News about the father and son.

The father told the newspaper his son was "the best" and "made everyone around him happy". That was my prince, man.

The smell of cooking fish could have caused the boy to reportedly have an allergic reaction.

Again, this requires a severe food allergy and it's "rare", although "asthmatics may be at higher risk for this", Purvi Parikh, MD, an allergist/immunologist with Allergy & Asthma Network, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

She urged parents and allergy sufferers to "never take your child's allergy lightly" and to educate family members, friends, teachers and others about the severity of the condition. While the 11-year-old used a nebulizer to help with his breathing, it didn't work, Jean-Pierre said. "In life threatening allergic reactions, timing is everything and delay in administration of epinephrine can be deadly".
