Investigators were called to Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary off Wallace School Road in West Ashley around 11:00am.

The child was given CPR and taken to MUSC. We are working to find out that child’s condition and the circumstances of what actually happened.

Officials say police were called to the school around 11am, but parents told us it took the school district a long time to notify them about what happened.

As of this morning, the school district has not responded to our requests for information.
