10-Year-Old Boy Collapses During Gym Class in NYC; Pronounced Dead at Hospital


A 10-year-old boy in Staten Island collapsed during gym class on Wednesday and was rushed to the hospital.

The boy suffered a fatal medical episode while participating in physical activity, according to a preliminary investigation.

ABC7 New York reported:

Police say when they responded to P.S. 78 in Staten Island they found the boy unconscious and unresponsive with no obvious signs of trauma.

The boy was taken to Richmond University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

“There are no words that can relieve the weight of this loss on friends, family and the entire PS 78 community,” New York City Department of Education Chancellor David Banks said. “I know that the memory of this student will live on in the lives that he touched, and that he will be truly missed by all.

Several months ago, a New York School District sent an email to parents warning parents of sudden cardiac arrest in K-12 children.

While reports indicate this tragedy occurred during a gym class, I want to note the NYC Department of Education’s COVID-19 jab requirements for 5-11-year old children.

All students and staff who participate in high-risk PSAL sports or competitive afterschool sports must be vaccinated against COVID-19. Students in fall high-risk sports must get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by their first day of competitive play. Winter and spring PSAL participants have until the beginning of their season to be fully vaccinated. High risk sports are football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, stunt, and rugby. Vaccination is also required for participation in bowling, because while not a high-risk sport, it takes place in spaces that require vaccination for children ages five and up.

A COVID-19 vaccination requirement also applies to students participating in high-risk after school extracurricular activities like chorus, musical theater, dance/dance team, band/orchestra (with concern for woodwinds), marching band, cheerleading/step teams/flag team. Students ages five and up must be vaccinated in order to participate in these extracurricular activities.

Students who wish to continue to participate in these activities must get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by December 14.

It’s unclear if these disgusting protocols apply to regular gym classes.

But the public should demand answers for this boy’s tragic death.

Based on the VAERS data alone, the experimental COVID-19 shot should be the starting point of an investigation.
