A day after a Normandy High School student died following an incident at the school, police are still trying to piece together what happened.
KMOV TV reports police say the 15-year-old student collapsed after another student, 14, reportedly struck him in the chest.
Officers say the interaction was believed to be friendly, and the students were simply horsing around. After the student collapsed, he was taken to St. Louis Children’s Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
The incident was believed to have happened shortly before 1 p.m. Thursday. It is unknown if the student suffered from a preexisting medical condition that may have led to the collapse. Police are currently collecting statements from other student witnesses.
