Student Dies After Collapsing on Friday

Taylor Sanderson, the junior high school student that collapsed during track practice Friday, died Sunday night at Covenant Medical Center. Taylor was running sprints at Smylie Wilson Junior High, when he collapsed.

Coaches and a school nurse performed CPR until paramedics arrived. A friend of the family tells NewsChannel 11, Taylor suffered from a rare heart disease. LISD officials say he had been cleared to compete in sports.

Now a fund has been set up to help Taylor's family pay for the medical and funeral costs. You can donate to the Taylor Sanderson Memorial Fund at any Wells Fargo Bank. You can mail your donations to 1500 Broadway, 79401 .

Make checks payable to Wells Fargo Bank, attention Tracy Bacon.
