ESQUIMALT - A 13-year-old girl has died after she had a severe allergic reaction to a burrito. The drug that might have saved her life was in her school locker.

Carley Kohnen, with allergies to a number of foods including dairy and peanuts, ordered a burrito and a doughnut from the Hillside mall food court on Thursday. According to her parents, she was told her food was free of the proteins to which she was deadly allergic.

The only child of Chris Kohnen, 56, and Brenda, 47, then went to Summit Park with her friends and soon went into anaphylactic shock and fell unconscious.

****Above all else, the girl's grieving mother wanted to tell parents: "Hug your child today, and tell them you love them."
