A 10-year-old girl died after her blood sugar dropped to extreme levels during a sleepover last weekend.
Sophia Daugherty of New Castle, Pa., who suffered from Type 1 diabetes, was found unresponsive on Sunday morning, WPXI reports.
Daughtery was transported to a local hospital with brain trauma.
The fifth-grader was declared brain dead Wednesday and her organs were donated to other children.
Daugherty attended a small school where she was known by everyone.
“A popular little girl; the most commonly used adjective is ‘sweet,’ sweet Sophia. She’s going to be sorely missed,” said Superintendent Len Rich of the Laurel School District.
This is to tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.
