Ten days she lasted before she died after having been strapped down to a bed. She wore soft helmet, face mask and arm splints to prevent her from injuring herself.
She was vomiting. Still they didn't take her to a hospital where she could be treated. Instead they strapped her to a bed. Five days and night took it before she died. It was not a nice way to go.
The facility is now being investigated. It was far from the first incident involving Carlton Palms Educational Center.
But for Paige Elizabeth Lunsford it was the last. She died aged only 14.
May she find peace where she is now.
