ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota family and classmates are grieving the loss of a high school sophomore who died after going into cardiac arrest on a school bus.

St. Cloud school officials say the 16-year-old Apollo High School student complained about shortness of breath, dizziness and sweating before the attack on the way home Tuesday afternoon. About 25 students were on the bus.

The boy was rushed to St. Cloud Hospital, but never regained consciousness. The St. Cloud Times identifies him as Kyle Biendara.

A police spokesman says an autopsy is being conducted.

The school district activated its crisis teams. Principal Charlie Eisenreich says some students sought help.

A funeral Mass for Kyle is set for 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Peter's Catholic Church in St. Cloud.
