GALVESTON, Texas (AP) - A woman has died after collapsing at the finish line of a half marathon in downtown Galveston over the weekend.

The Galveston County Daily News (https://bit.ly/1eJKCwU ) reports that organizers of the Run Like a Diva half marathon said in a statement that the woman collapsed Sunday morning and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

They did not release her name, age or cause of death.

Tommy Lee of Galveston Emergency Medical Services tells the newspaper that medical personnel treated the runner for full cardiac arrest.

He says first responders were unable to revive her, and she was transferred to the emergency room at the University of Texas Medical Branch.
