WELLESLEY, Mass. – A family is mourning the loss of their 16-year-old daughter, who suddenly collapsed during field hockey practice at school.
“It totally embodies Casey. That is pure joy, that’s pure Casey. And what it does for me as her mother and having to say goodbye, gives me a source of comfort to know that she was that happy and she died mercifully quick in a place that she loved , doing the sport that she loved with people that she loved,” Mary Dunne, Casey’s mother, told WHDH.
Just 30 minutes later after the photo was taken on Friday, she collapsed during practice and never woke up.
Doctors believe Casey died of a brain hemorrhage.
“She said to a friend that she essentially didn’t feel well and she collapsed and after that, people sought to get her help,” said Robert Henderson, the head of Noble and Greenough School.
