High School student dies after fall from Oklahoma stadium
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say a 16-year-old student has died after falling from the top of a stadium at the end of a high school football game in Oklahoma.
Officer James Koch of the Broken Arrow Police Department said via e-mail Saturday that the fall happened about 10 p.m. Friday at the Broken Arrow High School stadium as a game with a rival team was ending. Koch says the student was taken by ambulance to a hospital with undetermined injuries.
Broken Arrow Public Schools identified the student as Jaymeson West, a junior who played saxophone in the school band.
Koch says the fall is being treated as an accident and foul play isn’t suspected. Authorities say counselors and support staff will be available in the school throughout the coming week.
