A student, Jamieson Kuhlmann that went to Malvern Collegiate has died from injuries suffered during a lacrosse game that took place during the Victoria Day weekend.
Kuhlmann was hit at some point during a game on Monday afternoon. He played for the Toronto Beaches midget field lacrosse team. The game took place in Newmarket. It was a qualifying match for the provincial championships.
While Lacrosse is a physical sport with body checking this is the first death in the 30 year history of the Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club.
"The incident is being reviewed by the Ontario Lacrosse Association," John Steel, vice-president of the Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club, told CTV Toronto.
"It's too early to tell you what exactly happened."
His parents are in the process of making funeral arrangements after their son was removed from life support on Wednesday. They understand that is was a horrible accident and that they are not blaming anyone for their son's death.
Grief counselling is being offered to both students at Malvern Collegiate and the lacrosse players involved in the game.
