9 year old boy chokes to death at Peggs School

A Cherokee County community is mourning the death of a 9-year-old boy who choked to death during his school lunch hour.

It happened in the town of Peggs. The Sheriff's Office says it got a 911 call from the Peggs K-8 school at about 11:40 Thursday morning. School workers and emergency crews tried to administer the Heimlich maneuver.

The boy was flown to Tulsa’s Saint Francis hospital where he died. His name is not being released yet.

Classes at Peggs schools are canceled Friday.
