PITTSBURGH - A Pittsburgh mother says her son is in the hospital because his school wouldn't give him his inhaler.
Jonathan Battle, 10, has severe asthma and complained of problems Monday.
His mother, Danai, took him to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, where he was later admitted.
She claims the fifth-grader went without an inhaler for at least an hour, because Dilworth Traditional Academy staff wouldn't let him have it during an attack.

"He was having an asthma attack, told the teacher and she sent him to the nurse; she refused to give him his inhaler," Danai Battle said.
