Tooth infection killed Gulf Coast boy, 6

Authorities say a 6-year-old boy who collapsed on a Harrison County school bus died from an abscess where two teeth had been removed from his lower jaw.

Coroner Gary Hargrove says Alexander "Alex" Callender went into shock from the infection and his body shut down. Callender collapsed on the bus after leaving Lizana Elementary School Thursday.

The boy lived in a rural area near Pass Christian.
