High school cheerleader collapses at game, dies
A cheerleader who collapsed on the field at a high school football game Friday night at Fremont High School in South Los Angeles later died at a hospital, according to a school district spokesman.
Angela Gettis, a junior at Washington Prep High School, fell to the ground after a routine jump and went into a seizure about 9 p.m., said Tom Waldman, communications director for the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Paramedics were able to revive Gettis at the scene by shocking her heart, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
She was then rushed to Centinela Medical Center in Inglewood, where she died later that night, Waldman said.
By Saturday evening, a Facebook page memorializing her was full of tributes, including one that read: "I wish I just had one more day with you."
