A ninth-grade student died after taking part in a 200-meter run during a school sports event in Quang Binh Province, north-central Vietnam on Friday.

After running 200 meters, the schoolboy suffered fatigue, thereby being rushed to a nearby hospital.

However, he was pronounced dead.

The education and training division of Quang Trach District in the province confirmed on Saturday that the student passed away after attending a recent sports event for students in the district.

The student at Quang Lien Middle School was identified as T.N.L., a 15-year-old resident of Lien Truong Commune in Quang Trach District.
