A 10-year-old girl in Colleton County died Wednesday, two days after being involved in a fight at her elementary school. Coroner Richard Harvey identified the girl as Raniya Wright.
She had been receiving treatment at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Raniya, a fifth-grader, was described as a wonderful student who loved to spend time with friends & play basketball, according to a statement from the Colleton County School District.
"She will be missed greatly by her family, friends, & the entire school community," the statement said.
"Our entire school district is saddened by this event. It is very difficult to experience the death of a young person."
The Colleton County Sheriff's Office said the fight occurred between two fifth-grade students.
The school district said the fight happened inside a classroom at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, according to a Facebook post earlier this week. School administrators ended the fight & called EMS, the district said.
Dispatchers received a report of a student who had collapsed at school, according to a Sheriff's Office incident report. Wright was in the nurse's station when EMS arrived, & she was unconscious, but breathing, the incident report said.
Wright was transported to Colleton Medical Center then later airlifted to the Medical University of South Carolina for treatment. She died Wednesday morning. Harvey, the coroner, said an autopsy is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday. A student from the school was suspended until an investigation is complete, according to the district.
The Colleton County Sheriff's Office said there were no weapons involved in the incident and there have been no arrests or criminal charges made in the case.
