His mother claimed no one saw him choking at the time until he was unconscious. 

Hall’s sister, Chelsea Hall Meeks, wrote on Facebook before her nephew’s tragic death that he underwent ’30 minutes of CPR’.

‘His brain was without oxygen for a long time. His EEG’s are showing no activity and he’s not responding as he should be,’ she wrote. 

She also said Audi, who was autistic, had the most ‘infectious laugh’ and loved ‘airplanes, toy trucks and Paw Patrol’.

Before Audi passed away, the family had been asking the public for prayers on social media. 

On Tuesday, Audi’s mother wrote on Facebook: ‘Were going to get justice for my angel so nobody else ever has to feel this pain!’ 

The family’s lawyer said the incident is under investigation and authorities are still reviewing tapes from the incident. 

A DailyMail.com request for comment to the Escambla County School District was not immediately returned.
