California School District Will Pay $15M in Student Asthma Attack Death

A California school district has agreed to pay more than $15 million to the family of a student who died after suffering an asthma attack in 2019, family lawyers announced.

The Yuquipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District in Southern California will pay $15.75 million to Edith Sepulveda and adopt new security protocols to settle a lawsuit in the death of her 13-year-old daughter, Adeline Carrasco.

According to the lawsuit, Carrasco had a known history of asthma attacks while at school. Two such attacks were recorded in an online database and her student profile, which teachers are required to review, showed she had asthma, according to the lawsuit.

On October 31, 2019, Carrasco’s eighth grade science class at Mesa View Middle School held a “Pumpkin Chuckin’ Contest” on the school grounds to celebrate Halloween. The students covered approximately 366 yards from the classroom to the field. Part of the walk involved going down a hill on a long ramp, according to the suit.
