KILLINGLY, Conn. (AP) — A Killingly girl has died after suffering a medical emergency during a Little League softball game. It happened on Tuesday at Roseland Park in Woodstock.
The Killingly Little League Facebook page identified the girl who died as Morgan Ross.
Lynne Pierson, the Killingly superintendent of schools, says the child was a seventh-grader at Killingly Intermediate School. The game was not a school sponsored event.
Pierson says she did not know the nature of the child’s medical emergency. She says the family has asked for privacy.
Ross was taken to a local hospital, where she died.
State police say there was no criminal aspect to what happened.
Pierson says several schools are now providing support staff and grief counselors for students, their parents and educators for as long as necessary.
