Child collapses, dies during football game

Just moments before the start of the second half of Friday night’s football game between Wyoming East and the visiting Westside Renegades, a child collapsed just below the bleachers closest to the fieldhouse.

After several moments of trying to revive the child, he was transported to a Beckley hospital where he was pronounced dead, as was confirmed by Wyoming County Superintendent of Schools Frank Blackwell.
