Breathe Freely


Volusia County, Florida, officials are defending a nurse who withheld a student's inhaler from him during an asthma attack. They say the school did not have an up-to-date medical release form signed by Michael Rudi's parents. But they say they can't explain why no one called 911. Instead, school officials called his mother, who arrived at school to find Michael on the floor gasping for breath with the nurse standing over him.
