FORT CALHOUN, Neb. (AP) - The Fort Calhoun Community Schools superintendent says that a seventh-grader died after collapsing at track practice in Washington County.

Superintendent Don Johnson said that coaches immediately began life-saving measures on Gabe Namuth before he was transported by ambulance from Fort Calhoun Junior-Senior High School to an Omaha hospital around 4 p.m. Monday. Johnson said Namuth died on arrival.

School activities planned for the remainder of the day were canceled.

The Omaha World-Herald (https://bit.ly/1S7itXr ) reports that Johnson declined to give further details out of respect for Namuth’s family.
