Las Vegas Student Found Unresponsive After Gym Class, School Officials Say




A second Las Vegas student died last week after collapsing and being found unresponsive in a school bathroom.

Jordan Brister, 18, “experienced cardiac arrest” while at Amplus Academy on Jan. 3, according to a statement from the school. Brister’s parents later also confirmed his death.

The school released a statement saying that staff had “provided Jordan with emergency medical attention until paramedics arrived and transported him to Southern Hills Hospital. . . . Despite the efforts of first responders and the medical team at the hospital, Jordan passed away this past Sunday.”

Southern Hills hospital confirmed that Brister was an organ donor. In a Facebook video posted on Wednesday, healthcare workers were seen lining the hospital hallways as Brister was transferred to an operating room for organ donation in a procession called an “honor walk.”
