A 15-year-old boy died Tuesday afternoon after suffering a heart attack at the end of a sport class at his school in the Beit She'an Valley.

A Magen David Adom team arrived at the scene to find the boy barely conscious and with an interrupted heart beat. They then attempted to resuscitate him with electric shock treatment and medication.

The teenager was taken to Haemek Hospital in Afula in critical condition, where attempts were again made at resuscitation. He was declared dead at around 5 P.M.

He had no previously-known medical conditions.
