A Florida teen died after her mother took her to a church party. In truth, what was supposed to be a fun event turned deadly.
In a sad turn of events, Carsyn Leigh Davis died after attending a party at church. She died from complications of COVID-19, two days after she turned 17. However, her death could have been prevented.
Reports say that the church hosted a youth service on June 10. At the service, there were around 140 kids and adults, including Carsyn.
Florida data scientist Rebekah Jones had questions following the Medical Examiner’s report about the teen.
“With all the public articles relating to this poor girl’s death on June 23, and all the interviews done with Carsyn’s mother, why did so many fail to ask her why and how Carsyn got sick?” questioned Jones.
In a public Medical Examiner’s report, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement detailed the last two weeks of Carsyn’s life.
Carsyn had a compromised immune system. She also had a history of cancer and a rare autoimmune disorder.
During the 13 days after Carsyn fell ill, her mother treated her with unproven methods instead of taking her to see medical professionals.
Jones continued to detail the sad circumstances of the girl’s death.
Her mom, who is not a doctor, then prescribed her daughter azithromycin, an anti-bacterial drug with no known benefits for fighting COVID-19, for several days. During that “treatment period,” Carsyn developed headaches, sinus pressure, and a cough.
A few days later, without taking her to a doctor, her mother would later report that her daughter “looked gray” on June 19. So, she put Carsyn on her grandfather’s oxygen machine.
When that still did nothing to combat the cough, the headaches, the sinus infection and the fever, her mother started giving her hydroxychloroquine, the drug that was recklessly touted by President Trump as a supposed “cure.”
Jones is now urging for an investigation into the church for hosting the gathering. There is so much technology that exists today, such as cloud services. However, many churches refuse to make use of the internet to hold services. Instead, they’ve encouraged congregants to attend in person.
