St. Joseph School Mourns Death of Standard Six Basketballer

The student body, as well as the faculty and staff of St. Joseph School, is tonight mourning the sudden death of a promising young athlete.  On Friday evening, twelve-year-old Daemon Garcia, a member of the school’s basketball team, was practicing along with his teammates when he unexpectedly collapsed. The standard six student was immediately rushed to the hospital where he remained overnight.  Sadly, the young boy never regained consciousness.  It is unclear at this time what may have been the cause of his death.  News Five understands that the family of the minor is awaiting the result of an autopsy to be conducted sometime this week.  The family declined comment on the unfortunate incident; however, teachers and other members of staff were erecting a shrine in memory of Daemon at school this afternoon.  He had only just commenced his final year at the primary school last Monday and is remembered by teachers and peers as a jovial, fun-loving kid who was athletically inclined.
