Authorities in Denton trying to find out why first-grader collapsed and died


Quote:
Jensen Wright, 7, of Denton died at Denton Regional Medical Center shortly after she collapsed at Wayne Stuart Ryan Elementary, said Troy Taylor, chief investigator with the medical examiner's satellite office in Denton.

She had eaten a peanut butter sandwich and an apple, and then went to the restroom before returning to the cafeteria to get in line to go back to the classroom, Taylor said.

"As she was in line, a classmate yelled at a teacher that something was wrong with her," Taylor said.

The teacher walked Jensen to a nurse's office, Taylor said.

"The nurse noticed that her lips were blue, but her heart rate was fine," Taylor said.

Jensen then collapsed.

The nurse tried a Heimlich maneuver and cardiopulmonary resuscitation before paramedics arrived.

She was taken to the hospital, where she died at 12:41 p.m. Tuesday.
