LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A vigil is planned Monday for a Dunbar High School student athlete who collapsed and died last week.
15-year-old Star Ifeacho collapsed in the gym Wednesday. Dunbar boy’s head basketball coach, Scott Chalk, says Ifeacho told staff he was feeling light-headed during open gym.
After going back with the trainer, Ifeacho collapsed.
Chalk says trainers and teammates worked to revive the teen, but Ifeacho later died at UK Hospital.
The coroner has not determined a cause of death.
A vigil in his honor will take place tonight at 6:00 p.m. at the Dunbar High School gym
