A heartbreaking incident that occurred five years ago has resulted in a Southern California school district being ordered to pay $18 million to the parents of an eight-year-old boy with Down syndrome, Your Content has learned.

Moises Murrillo, a young boy full of life, tragically lost his life after falling while strapped to a chair in his classroom.

On May 31, 2017, Moises was left unsupervised while seated in a strapped chair. Unexpectedly, he fell backward, hitting his head on the floor and fracturing his neck.

The staff had taken him out of his special adaptive stroller before the unfortunate accident occurred.

Immediately after the fall, Moises went into cardiac arrest, prompting his rushed transfer to a hospital. Despite the best efforts of medical professionals, he passed away four days later.

The La Puente Unified school district, where Moises attended, lacked a proper policy to ensure adequate supervision for students with special needs at that time. As a result of this oversight, the devastating accident took place.

It is important to note that the settlement agreement does not entail an admission of fault from the school district. However, the court has ruled in favor of the grieving parents, recognizing the need for accountability and financial compensation for the loss of their beloved son.

This incident serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of providing appropriate care and attention to all students, especially those with special needs, within educational institutions, according to FLIPBOARD.
