5th-Grader Who Died After Classroom Fight Said She Felt 'Dizzy' Before Passing Out: 911 Call
Officials said last week RaNiya Wright died of natural causes.
A South Carolina fifth-grade student who died following a classroom fight reportedly said she felt "dizzy" before she lapsed into unconsciousness.
RaNiya Wright, 10, was unconscious but breathing when authorities arrived at Forest Hills Elementary School late last month after RaNiya and another student got into a fight. She was taken to a hospital but died two days later.
A newly released 911 call documents what happened after RaNiya lost consciousness.
“She was in a fight, in a physical altercation,” the person calling for help tells the dispatcher. “And before she went completely out, she reported that she was dizzy and we had to carry her to the nurse's office.”
After her daughter's death, RaNiya's mother, Ashley Wright, spoke out, saying she had raised concerns of bullying and had complained to the school previously.
“That's what really breaks me down and makes me question to myself why nothing was never done up until now with this happening,” Wright told "Good Morning America."
Last week, prosecutors announced RaNiya had died of natural causes and said the fight had likely not led to her passing.
"There was no evidence of trauma on or inside the body of RaNiya Wright that would indicate that any fight in any magnitude contributed to her death," district solicitor Duffie Stone said at a press conference Friday.
