WILTON MANORS, Fla. — Authorities say a Florida teen who collapsed during gym class at school has died.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says 14-year-old Kamarr D. Scott fell to the ground on an athletic field Thursday morning at Somerset Village Academy.

A Wilton Manors police office gave the seventh grade boy CPR before he was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Principal Anthony Marucci told the SunSentinel that grief counselors were on hand at the school on Friday for teachers and students. He said he had known the boy since he attended first grade at the school, which runs through eighth grade.

An autopsy will determine a cause of death.
