The youngster’s death follows news of another 13-year-old who passed away on the Costa del Sol.
On March 28, a teenage boy was reportedly playing in the playground with the rest of his classmates at the Sierra de Mijas Secondary Education Institute, located in the province of Malaga, when he allegedly fainted without prior warning.
Despite rescue efforts, the teenager was pronounced dead at the scene.
Earlier this week, we reported on multiple accounts of young athletes suddenly passing away.

The mainstream media refuses to ask the obvious question that must be answered.
Did these young athletes receive the experimental COVID-19 shots?
That should be question #1 for an investigation into these tragedies.
