The incident unfolded in kindergarten on Friday.

The kindergarten class held their end of year party at the Rainbow Park Elementary School in Opa-Locka. The teachers ordered six pizza pies from a nearby Pope John’s.

While the students were eating their pizza,a 5-year-old boy noticed something strange. When he peeled away the cheese, he found a large roach.
