10-year-old girl with diabetes dies after blood sugar drops during sleepover
NEW CASTLE, Pa. – A 10-year-old girl died after her blood sugar dropped to extreme levels during a sleepover last weekend.
Sophia Daugherty of New Castle, Pa., who suffered from Type 1 diabetes, was found unresponsive on Sunday morning, WPXI reports.
Daughtery was transported to a local hospital with brain trauma.
The fifth-grader was declared brain dead Wednesday and her organs were donated to other children.
Daugherty attended a small school where she was known by everyone.
"A popular little girl; the most commonly used adjective is 'sweet,' sweet Sophia. She's going to be sorely missed," said Superintendent Len Rich of the Laurel School District.
