At 9:10 am, the girl sat down in a stairwell to rest. After around 30 minutes, the girl was found collapsed and without vital signs. The school nurse was immediately notified, and performed CPR, including use of an automated external defibrillator (AED). Paramedics continued resuscitation efforts while rushing the girl to the hospital, but the student was later declared dead.
