Head teacher leads tributes to Burnham girl after fatal asthma attack

Tributes have been paid to a Burnham-On-Sea youngster who has died after an asthma attack.

Veronica Chojnacka tragically passed away after being rushed to hospital last Friday following a suspected cardiac arrest.

She was a pupil at King Alfred School in Highbridge, where head teacher Denise Hurr has led tributes to her.

"We have received the sad news that one of our students in Class 7G, Veronica Chojnacka, died on Sunday 21st February after suffering an asthma attack," she said.

"This is incredibly sad news for all of us and we would like to express our sympathy to her family at this difficult time."

The air ambulance landed in the town last Friday evening to help her and its crew joined ambulance crews in treating the girl, who was taken to hospital in Bristol.

Scores of tribute messages have been posted on social media for the youngster.
