An Uvalde Mom Reports That Her Grieving Fourth Grader Nearly Suffered Cardiac Arrest

A fourth grader who survived the Uvalde school shooting in Texas has been hospitalized after she nearly went into cardiac arrest after her best friend’s memorial late last month, according to her mother, Jessica Treviño.

Illiana Treviño, 11, had gone to the memorial to leave a teddy bear and flowers for her friend Amerie Jo Garza, one of 19 children killed by the shooter at Robb Elementary on May 24. Before her death, Amerie, 10, had protected Illiana from bullies at school.

During the memorial, Illiana told her mother she wasn’t feeling well. Her heart rate began to spike and they went to a hospital, where, Treviño reported, doctors said Illiana been on the cusp of a heart attack. She remained hospitalized as of Thursday, according to People. “Her Heart can’t take the stress and trauma of the past week,” Illiana’s father wrote on a GoFundMe page raising money for the family’s expenses. “We are barely seeing the ripples side effects of what this tragic incident has brought to our community.” Treviño told People that her daughter had been otherwise healthy before the incident.

Illiana is no longer in the ICU and was transferred to a hospital in San Antonio. Doctors told her mother she is showing signs of post-traumatic stress disorder. “Her body was basically reacting to the shock,” Treviño told People, adding that her daughter is now terrified at the prospect of returning to class without her best friend. “Amerie made her feel safe and made her feel okay to go to school.”
