Chaska boy dies after going for a run

Joshua Damptey, a 10-year-old boy collapsed after going for a run with his school’s running club.

According to the Star Tribune, “[Damptey] collapsed at Oak Point Intermediate School around 2:30 p.m. Friday,? and “died shortly after at a local hospital.?

An email was sent out to families notifying them of the death.

Although he had moved with his mother Sylvia and his brother Victor to Chaska, both boys remained in the Eden Prairie School District. According to the Chaska Herald,? [Joshua] previously attended Eden Lake Elementary School and his brother attended Eagle Heights Spanish Immersion School.

Brian Busch recalled to the Star Tribune the boy’s happy memories. “He would ride his bike around happily,? he said.

The Associated Press reported that a cause of death has not been released.

I was very surprised that the Chaska Herald’s article offered very little information compared to other publications, especially considering that the family is from Chaska.
