PRINCE GEORGE, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia are investigating the death of a 16-year-old special needs student who apparently became sick at school and died at a hospital five days later.

Prince George County police Capt. Brian Kei tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/2dAXFKT) that authorities received a 911 call about the boy on Sept. 21 from the front office of Prince George High School.

The boy, whom police declined to identify, was taken to John Randolph Medical Center in Hopewell and was later flown to Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. He died Sept. 26.

Superintendent Renee Williams says police are conducting an investigation relating to school personnel. She says the student became sick at the dismissal of school before he got on the bus.
