SHE WAS CELEBRATING WITH HER FRIENDS AND MOMENTS LATER SHE WAS GONE. TONIGHT MOURNING THE SHOCKING AND SUDDEN LOSS OF A 16-YEAR- OLD FIELD HOCKEY PLAYER. THERE WERE REALLY NO WARNING. CASEY DUNNE DIED SUDDENLY OF A BRAIN HEMORRHAGE. LETTER FAMILY HER FRIENDS CLASSMATES ARE GRIEVING WHILE ALSO TRYING TO CELEBRATE THE LIFE THAT SHE LIVED. JIM SMITH IS LIVE IN DEADHAM TONIGHT. Reporter: DAVID, THIS ENTIRE SCHOOL COMMUNITY IS IN SHOCK TONIGHT. YOU CAN SEE THE FLAG AT HALF STAFF BEHIND ME AS EVERYBODY STRUGGLES TO COPE WITH THE SUDDEN LOSS OF THIS YOUNG GIFTED STUDENT ATHLETE WHO HAD HER WHOLE LIFE IN FRONT OF HER. SHE WAS THE LIGHT OF OUR LIFE ABANDON KIND OF THE GLUE OF EVERYONE. Reporter: CASEY DUNNE WAS ONLY 16 YEARS OLD AND HER MOTHER MARY STILL CAN’T BELIEVE HER DAUGHTER IS GONE. KEEP THINKING SEES GOING TO COME BOUNDSING THROUGH THE BACK DOOR AND SAY THIS IS ALL A TERRIBLE JOKE, BUT I KNOW THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Reporter: CASEY WAS PLAYING FIELD HOCKEY LAST FRIDAY AT NOBLE AND GREENOUGH SCHOOL SUFFERING A MASSIVE BRAIN HEMORRHAGE AT THE START OF PRACTICE. IT WAS PROBABLY SOMETHING SHE WAS BORN WITH AND NO WAY TO DETECT IT. FORTUNATELY IT WAS QUICK AND SHE DIDN’T SUFFER TOO MUCH. RIGHT IN THIS AREA. Reporter: HEAD OF SCHOOL ROBERT HENDERSON SAYS THERE WASN’T ANYTHING ANYBODY COULD DO. IT WAS JUST THAT QUICK. SHE TURNED TO A FRIEND AND SAID THAT SHE DIDN’T FEEL WELL AND NEXT THING EVERYONE KNEW SHE WAS ON THE GROUND. IT HAPPENED SO SWIFT THINK. IT WAS A MASSIVE BRAIN BLEED AND THERE REALLY WASN’T MUCH THAT ANYBODY COULD DO. Reporter: CASEY LOVED DUCKS AND THAT’S NOW THE THEME OF A GROWING MEMORIAL SET UP BY HEARTBROKEN CLASSMATES. HER MOM DRAWS STRENGTH FROM THIS FINAL PICTURE OF CASEY TAKEN MINUTES BEFORE SHE WAS STRICKEN. IT’S PURE CASEY, PURE JOY. SHE WAS PURE JOY. AND THE THING ABOUT THAT PICTURE IS THAT IT WAS TAKEN HALF AN HOUR BEFORE SHE COLLAPSED AND FOR ME IT ACTS AS A SOURCE OF COMFORT BECAUSE I KNEW THAT SHE WAS HAPPY, SHE WAS WITH THE PEOPLE THAT SHE LOVED, HER TEAM. Reporter: TOMORROW WILL BE COUNSELING DAY, IF YOU WELL, HERE AT NOBLE AND GREENOUGH SCHOOL FOR ANY STUDENT WHO NEEDS IT. YOUNG CASEY WAS FROM WELLESLEY HER WAKE IS GOING TO BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY.
