Kindergartener Dies On Field Trip To Toledo Zoo

MONROE COUNTY (WWJ) – A kindergartener from Monroe County has died after collapsing on a school field trip to the Toledo Zoo.

The Lucas County Coroner (Ohio) said 6-year-old Nicholas Allore, of Temperance, had complained of pain in his belly earlier on Thursday, but it wasn’t serious enough to keep him from going on the trip.

According to The Blade of Toledo, when Allore collapsed, a nearby emergency room physician performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

An autopsy is planned for Saturday. The boy had no history of medical problems.

Bedford Public Schools Superintendent Ted Magrum told The Blade the child was one of about 50 kindergarten students from Smith Road Elementary School visiting the zoo.
