Gainesville Athlete Who Collapsed Monday Dies Early This Morning

 A Florida high school athlete who collapsed during track and field drills has died. Eastside High School Assistant Principal James Sheppard says 17-year-old Sarah Landauer died early Wednesday at a Gainesville hospital.

Landauer had been hospitalized since Monday after she collapsed during track practice. The Alachua County Sheriff's Office said someone on the field performed CPR and an external defibrillator was used to try to revive the teen.

A bystander also performed CPR on Landauer on Feb. 24 when she collapsed while training at a University of Florida track. According to a university police report, Landauer's parents said the teen had a cold and had slight trouble breathing during soccer practice the previous day but she had no other health problems.
