Investigators are trying to determine why a 16-year-old Pennsylvania boy collapsed in school and later died.

The Lehigh County Coroner's office says Juanya Spady was pronounced dead around noon Thursday after collapsing about an hour earlier during an English class. Officials say Spady was a 10th grader at Liberty High School in Bethlehem.

Authorities say Spady collapsed in his seat and school nurses performed CPR until police and medics arrived. The teen was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

School officials say counselors were immediately brought in to talk with students.

An autopsy was conducted Friday but First Deputy Coroner Paul Hoffman tells The Morning Call of Allentown that further tests are needed.
