2 Oklahoma children die of meningococcemia

OOLOGAH, Okla. (AP) - Two students at an elementary school in
the Oologah-Talala School District have died from a rare blood
disease.
Andrew Gregory Thomas, 7, and Shuache Moua, 8, died Thursday
after contracting an infection called meningococcemia, also known
as meningitis.
The two were among six children from Oologah-Talala schools who
fell ill with the disease last week.
The grandfather of 6-year-old Jeremiah Mitchell, also taken ill
at Oologah-Talala's Lower Elementary School, said the youngster was
in critical condition Saturday. Rockie Mitchell said doctors gave
his grandson a 25 percent chance of surviving his illness.
