12-year-old girl dies after tug of war game


A 12-year-old girl collapsed and died after a game of tug of war during her school’s field day activities.

Coaches and a school nurse at the Williams Intermediate School in Pell City, Alabama, tried to resuscitate the
sixth-grader but were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later.

The incident happened around noon Thursday.

The girl, whose name was not released, didn’t appear to have any kind of health condition that may have led to her death, Pell City Police spokesman Don Newton told CNN affiliate WBRC.

The St. Clair County coroner’s office said it wasn’t releasing any information yet.
