Indianapolis boy dies after collapsing in snow

INDIANAPOLIS – Police in Indianapolis say a seventh-grade boy has died after apparently collapsing and being found face down in the snow.

Police Lt. Chris Bailey said firefighters heading to another call came upon the boy Monday morning about the same time a 911 call came in from an apartment complex on the city’s far south side. He said firefighters performed CPR on the boy before he was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Bailey said the boy’s parents told emergency workers he had a pre-existing medical condition that could have caused him to collapse.
