    A 15-year-old high school student in Newport, Rhode Island, has collapsed at basketball practice and died.

    The Newport Daily News reports that Will Foreman, a sophomore at Rogers High School, was participating in a vacation-week practice session Tuesday with his coaches and teammates when he was stricken.

    Coaches administered CPR until Newport firefighters arrived and took over. Foreman was declared dead at Newport Hospital.

    No cause of death was announced Tuesday.

    The school's girls' basketball team cancelled a game scheduled for Tuesday and boys' basketball activities have been called off indefinitely.

    Grief counselors and School Department staff were to be at Rogers High School Wednesday to offer help.
