The Brush community is mourning the loss of a Brush High School student who died unexpectedly Tuesday night.

Alec Kornet, a junior, died Tuesday evening, according to the district.

Family members tell WKYC the 17-year-old fell while skating during a hockey practice Tuesday night.

After making his way to the bench, he had some water and then collapsed again.

The team's coach and Kornet's father performed CPR, but a pulse wasn't able to be detected.

The teen wasn't hit in the head, had no medical conditions, and doesn't take energy drinks, his father told WKYC.

Alec was an honor student and member of the band, hockey and soccer teams.

The district is providing grief counseling to students and staff.

The community has already started showing support for Kornet and his family.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kornets & all in the Brush community.
