SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. — A student died after collapsing at a Florida middle school.

Florida Today reports that the seventh-grade boy collapsed between classes Monday afternoon at DeLaura Middle School in Satellite Beach. He was taken to a local hospital, and school administrators later learned that he had died.

The student’s name wasn’t immediately released. Officials didn’t know what caused him to collapse.
