A 12-year-old boy died Monday after apparently suffering a heart attack at his school in Rishon Letzion.

The boy, who attended Chafetz Chaim Talmud Torah school, was found unconscious after he apparently fell down the stairs.

Teachers at the school attempted to revive him and Magen David Adom paramedics attempted CPR.

He was taken to Assaf Harofeh Hospital, Tzrifin, where he was pronounced dead.

The doctors there found no external signs of injury to his body and determined that he died of a heart attack, not from the fall.
