SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A high school student in Spartanburg County has died after collapsing on the track at the school.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger says officials were called to Mary Black Memorial Hospital in Spartanburg shortly after 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, where 14-year-old Chaquantei Qualiq Fowler of Cowpens was pronounced dead.
Clevenger said the ninth-grader collapsed on the track at Broome High School.
A school nurse and athletic trainer administered first aid until emergency medical service workers arrived, but they were unable to revive the teen.
“We offer our deepest prayers and sympathies to this student, his family, and Broome students and faculty,” the statement from the school district said.
An autopsy was planned Thursday to determine the cause of death.
Clevenger said there is no indication of foul play. His office also planned to interview several witnesses.
