Cameron Espinosa's mother consumed wth grief telling Action 10 News she is holding the district responsible for her son's death.
"My baby could be here if there were more trained personnel on the field that could have an epipen or something," said Josephine Limon, Cameron's mom.
And there were comments from parents.
"From what I hear the coaches walked the field, don't seem like it," said one parent.
And even a school district board member saying the district dropped the ball.
"I just feel like you know what, we didn't do our job," said Hector Salinas.
We are now learning high powered local attorney Thomas J. Henry has been retained by Cameron's family to investigate what went wrong on this playing field last Wednesday when he was bit by ants, went into shock, then died five days later.
"This is a time to go out and examine fields, examine safety issues, examine policies, and procedures," said Henry.
Henry wants to know what policies were in effect and what ones weren't. More specifically, was this playing field treated for ants and was it policy to do so. Was there proper personnel on scene to treat Espinosa and did that treatment time take too long.
"All that is now going under the microscope. We are going to determine whether or not appropriate policies or procedures exist at the school district," said Henry.
We tried to talk to the school district today about this possible legal action but they would not answer those requests from Action 10 news reporter John Rupolo.
