Police revealed some heartbreaking news about a teenager who passed away quite unexpectedly. The death happened during the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) 5K at Everglades High School in Miramar, Florida.
Jimmy Arrojo, principal of Western High School, released a statement that said, “I am saddened to share tragic news impacting our Wildcat community. One of our JROTC students passed away this morning after being transported to the hospital. I want to offer my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones, teachers, and classmates as they mourn this great loss.”
“I ask our Wildcat community to rally around the family in prayer and support during this time of deep sorrow,” he stated.
While the young boy’s name was not been officially released, a GoFundMe page has been set up for a student identified as Knox MacEwen.
“On November 4th, 2023, the MacEwen family suddenly and tragically lost their beloved 14-year-old son, Knox,” the description of the GoFundMe page read. “He was a revered member of his local community – a JROTC student, a volunteer with the kids ministry at his home church; and he was a beloved brother, son, grandson, nephew and friend.”
The GoFundMe page also mentioned that Knox’s mother had suffered from cancer last year.
On Tuesday morning, the account had already raised $67,000, which was well over the original goal of $30,000.
Sudden cardiac arrest is quite rare in young people. Only about 200 adolescents pass away from the condition each year in the United States, according to statistics on the Mayo Clinic.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people who experience cardiac arrest might display one or more of the symptoms, such as collapsing, fainting or passing out, struggling to breathe, becoming unresponsive, or having no pulse.
In such a situation, it is pertinent to notify emergency services and get medical attention for the person right away.
