Counsellors have been called in to help friends of a child who died of a brain haemorrhage.
Megan White had been joking with school friends when she collapsed just after lunch at her school in the UK on January 13.
Staff at All Saints’ Academy in Cheltenham immediately called an ambulance before doctors discovered the haemorrhage and Megan underwent emergency surgery.
The 11-year-old girl died the next day in Bristol Children’s Hospital.
Her mother, Becky, said Megan had been “happier than usual on the morning of Friday the 13th when she died”.
“It was instant and quick and the surgeons said she wouldn’t have known anything,” Mrs White said.
Megan’s principal, Peter Kingham, said she was a very popular student who was bright and cheerful.
