Correction: Girl age 16
A 16 year old 9th grader at Lincoln City Adventist School collapsed and died during a student one mile jog. Reports say that she was running in a group with a supervising teacher. But as they approached Oceanlake School on their return, she collapsed and wasn’t breathing.
The teacher immediately began CPR and actually got the girl breathing again, but very shallow. She was turning blue. Paramedics took over with a valiant attempt to keep her heart beating
The principal of Lincoln City Seventh Day Adventist School said the girl was rushed to North Lincoln Hospital where she tragically passed away. He said the school and its families are utterly devastated. The children are being consoled as well as their families. They offer their prayers and deepest condolences to the girl’s family who had their daughter enrolled in the school since the 2nd grade. So the loss to the school and its families is profound.
No word on what may have taken the girl so quickly.
