SAVANNAH, Ga ()- The Savannah-Chatham County Public School (SCCPSS) administrators have confirmed the loss of a student.

A student-athlete with the Windsor Forest High School Junior Varsity team suffered a medical emergency on the sideline of a game Monday night.

According to SCCPSS, the student-athlete had played earlier in the game but had been rotated out of the lineup and was watching from the sideline when the incident occurred.

Trainers and EMS staff on-site began immediate life-saving measures using CPR and an AED.

Those efforts continued during transport to the hospital for further medical attention. The student succumbed to injuries shortly after reaching Memorial Children’s Hospital.

SCCPSS has not released any further information on the cause of the student’s death.

Counselors and school social workers will be at Windsor Forest High School on Tuesday to counsel any student or staff member seeking to speak with someone.
