15-year-old Anthony Ruelas attends Gateway Middle School in Killeen, TX, and he was suspended from school on Tuesday for physically bringing a classmate suffering an asthma attack to the nurse while his teacher "waited for [an email] from the nurse." After watching his classmate struggle to breathe for several minutes while the teacher asked the class to remain calm, Ruelas, concerned for her health, picked her up and carried her to medical attention, albeit rather rudely. According to the teacher's own statement,

During 5th period another student complained that she couldn't breathe and was having an asthma attack. As I waited for a response from the nurse the student fell out of her chair to the floor.  Anthony proceeded to go over and pick her up, saying ‘f—k that we ain’t got time to wait for no email from the nurse.’ He walks out of class and carries the other student to the nurse.”
