Oakland boy, 10, died of heart failure

We finally have some answers about the 10-year-old boy who collapsed yesterday at East Oakland’s Achieve Academy and later died at Children’s Hospital-Oakland.

Juan Sanchez Barrozo was walking to the school library with his fifth-grade class yesterday morning when he fell to the ground. An autopsy today found that he died of heart failure. 

I don’t have a photo of Juan, otherwise I’d post it. What a sad day for the kids at Achieve Academy, and for the boy’s family and friends.
