LIBERTY - A Liberty High School student who collapsed outside the building after school Friday afternoon has died, according to various sources.
Eyewitnesses told the Tribune Chronicle that the female student, who was a senior, was being attended to by emergency personnel and school employees. She was taken to Northside Medical Center.
School employees performed CPR on the student, and later another school employee tried to use a defibrillator in attempts to revive her, according to eyewitnesses. She collapsed at about 2:45 p.m.
