STAMFORD, Conn. — An unidentified 15-year-old girl died after becoming ill at Wright Tech High School in Stamford on Friday afternoon, state police said.

She fell ill at about 12:30 p.m.and was transported to Stamford Hospital, where she was later pronounced deceased, said state police spokesman Trooper First Class Kelly Grant. 

State Police at Troop G in Bridgeport were notified and responded to the state-run school. 

"This is an untimely death with no criminal aspect, not suspicious," Grant said. "This incident originated as a medical service call." It was due to a "medical condition," she said.

The girl’s identity was not released.

A Stamford police source said the girl, who had asthma, appeared to have trouble breathing before possibly going into cardiac arrest, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The regional state-run technical high school also serves students from Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk, Westport, Wilton and Weston.
