A 14-year-old Holy Family School student died Thursday night after collapsing during a basketball game.
Teddy Ray Daigle passed away at Lafayette General, according to a news release from the school.
The game was taking place around 6:15 p.m. at a First Baptist Church building. School officials said a 911 call was made immediately after Daigle collapsed. Resuscitation efforts were made, but were ultimately unsuccessful.
“Our school, with the cooperation of many caring individuals, is providing grief and crisis counseling beginning immediately today, Friday, for as long as the need exists,” the school said in a news release. “We are deeply saddened and sincerely appreciate the support and caring of our close-knit school family.”
