Paramedics and parents were attending to another 15 children also complaining
of stomach cramps, fever and dizziness, said emergency services spokesperson
A pupil collapsed just after assembly at Slovoville
primary school, in Soweto,
at 8.30am, said Morokane.
However, the school head said the children had not been given any meal at the
school, he said.
There were a lot of tuckshops nearby, but there was

one to seven.
