LAKE ELSINORE, CA, Sept. 2, 2023 — A middle school student in Lake Elsinore, identified as Yahshua, passed away during a physical education class after reportedly being made to run in approximately 95-degree heat. According to Amarna Plummer, the boy’s aunt, Yahshua had not dressed appropriately for the class and was told to run as a consequence.

Despite his pleas, the situation escalated, culminating in Yahshua losing consciousness on the field. Emergency services were called, but the boy was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly after arrival.
