JOHNSON, Neb. — A high school senior collapsed and died during a basketball game at his small school in southeast Nebraska this week.
Terron Jones died Wednesday while playing basketball in the Johnson-Brock High School gym.
Superintendent Jeff Koehler said Jones and several other students had just finished one game and were starting a second one when he collapsed.
Koehler said it was not clear what happened. Jones had not been complaining about feeling ill beforehand and didn’t appear to have any injuries.
A coach that was in the gym performed CPR until paramedics arrived. Jones was taken to an area hospital, where he died about an hour later.
Jones had a twin sister, a younger sister and three adopted siblings who all attend Johnson-Brock schools. — AP
