Collinsville HS student dies after fall down stairs

Both teams united in memory of Tray Turner.

A Collinsville High School has died after falling down the stairs at the school.

Officials say high school freshman Tray Turner was airlifted to a hospital after the fall earlier this week.

Collinsville Police did investigate, but the chief says they believe it was just a tragic accident.

Tray's parents have released the following statement:

“We want you to know that we so greatly appreciate the prayers of support you have all provided this week. We ask that you continue to come together, united in focusing positive thoughts and prayers. This morning at approximately 9:30 a.m., Tray earned his angel wings. We ask that you all continue to honor Tray’s life by coming together in love.”

The family has asked for privacy during this difficult time.

The school says Thursday's homecoming parade is canceled as students mourn the loss of their classmate. The homecoming football game, dance and coronation will go on this weekend as planned. They will also take up a collection at this Friday's football game.
