A high-school football player from Washington state has died from injuries sustained in a game, officials said Monday, the second game-related fatality in just over a week.
Highline Public Schools said in a statement that Kenney Bui, a senior at Evergreen High School, was “critically injured” during Friday night’s game. He underwent surgery at Harborview Medical Center but died late Monday morning, the school district said.
“This is a devastating loss for all of us,” Superintendent Susan Enfield said.
Bui was a senior at the Technology and Communications High School, one of three small schools housed on the Evergreen campus.
