Mechanicsburg High School senior has medical emergency, dies at school

Posted: Updated:

On Tuesday a senior at Mechanicsburg High School in Cumberland County had a medical emergency at school and died.

abc27 heard from some parents who are frustrated at what they feel is a lack of information from the district about what happened, and even the identity of the boy.

The superintendent sent us the following statement:

"This afternoon, a senior student at Mechanicsburg High School experienced a medical emergency. The student was transported to the hospital by ambulance and was pronounced dead a short time later. Counseling services will be provided to students and staff as necessary. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time."

abc27 will update as more information is made available.
