A teenage girl has died suddenly from a heart attack while on her way back from a college graduation ceremony.
Gouda Remeikaite, a 17-year-old student from County Meath in Ireland, tragically fell ill on the bus home after graduating from Boyne Community College in Trim on Wednesday.
Paramedics responding to the scene were unable to help the popular teen, whose mother had passed away only three years previously as a result of a cardiac condition.
She had lived with her father and sister just outside the town.
Local politician James O’Shea, a member of the college’s management board, said: ‘The whole school campus and the staff are all shocked. My heart really goes out to her family and friends.
‘I can remember this girl, I met her when she was in transition year and she was very pleasant and popular.’
Irish police are not currently treating the death as suspicious.
