10-Year-Old Dies From Injuries Following Classroom Fight

This story is absolutely tragic.

A fifth-grader in South Carolina died on Wednesday after she was injured in a school fight earlier in the week, according to officials.

The 10-year-old child–identified by the Colleton County Coroner as Raniya Wright– died on Wednesday morning at the Medical University of South Carolina. She was airlifted there from Colleton Medical Center after suffering injuries during a Monday fight in her classroom at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, according to a statement from the Sheriff’s Office.

This “assault” is still under investigation, according to the sheriff’s department.

“We are devastated by this news, and we want our communities to keep their thoughts and prayers with the student’s family at this time,” The Colleton County School District said in a statement. “CCSD officials continue to focus on providing needed support services to our students, teachers, staff, and community.”

An earlier statement from the district said school staff had “secured the scene, ended the fight, and called emergency medical services to the school” after the girl was injured. Another student was suspended following the incident.

Colleton County School District is cooperating with the Colleton County Sheriff’s Office, according to the district.

RIP to Raniya Wright and condolences to her entire family.
