During a school day, Ryan was hit with a severe asthma attack while outside for recess. The 12-year-old started to gasp for air when his airways constricted. Noticing Ryan's discomfort, his friends tried to carry him to the office where his inhaler was. Usually he would always have his inhaler on him, but the school mandates a child's inhaler be kept in the office.
