Body:  Body: I am re-posting this, if you have children then read this

Yesterday, my youngest daughter, Halle , who is 4,

was rushed to the emergency room by her father for being

severely lethargic and incoherent.

He was called to her

school by the school secretary for being 'very VERY sick.

He told me that when he arrived, Halle was barely

sitting in the chair.

She couldn't hold her own head up

and when he looked into her eyes, she couldn't focus them.

He immediately scooped her up and rushed her to the

ER, and then called me.

When we got there, they ran blood test after blood

test and did x-rays, every test imaginable.

Her white blood

cell count was normal, nothing was out of the ordinary.

The ER doctor told us that he had done everything that he could

do so he was sending her to Saint Francis for further tests.

Right when we were leaving in the ambulance, her

teacher came to the ER and, after questioning Halle's

classmates, we found out that she had licked hand sanitizer

off her hand, Hand sanitizer, of all things.

But it makes sense.

These days they have all kinds of

different scents and when you have a curious child, they

are going to put all kinds of things into their mouths.

When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the ER

doctor there to check her blood alcohol level, and yes we

did get weird looks, but they did it.

The results showed her

blood alcohol level was 85% -- six hours after we first

took her.   There's no telling what it would have been if

we would have requested it at the first ER.

Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools

have taken this out of the classrooms of all the lower grade

classes, but what's to stop middle and high school

kids from ingesting the stuff?

After doing research on the Internet, we have found

out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be fatal in

a toddler.   For her blood alcohol level to be so high was to

compare someone her size to drinking something 120 pr oof.

So please PLEASE don't disregard this because I

don't ever want anyone else to go through what my family

and I have gone through.

Please send this to everyone you know who has

children or are going to be having children.

It doesn't   matter what age

Has this been verified or just another hoax?
