A Georgia high school student is dead after suffering a medical emergency Wednesday September 21, 2022, afternoon during a flag football game.
The incident took place at The Weber School, a private Jewish school in Sandy Springs, a suburb of Atlanta.
Sandy Springs police did not provide details, but only quoted as the police saying “they are working with the family and the school.”
On Thursday, a website published the text of a note from the school to parents and students and gave the student’s name.
The student’s age was not released. “This afternoon during a Weber flag football game, a member of the senior class, Eitan Force, suffered a critical medical emergency on the field,”
It was not revealed if the emergency was encountered while competing. “Our trainers and staff immediately went to his aid prior to the arrival of emergency healthcare professionals.
Eitan was transported to a local hospital for further care. Tragically, we received word that Eitan passed away earlier this evening,” the note said.
“With respect for their privacy, Eitan’s parents request that we do not reach out or contact the family at this time,” the note said.
