Student succumbs after suffering a heart attack in Haiti's latest school panic
By The Associated Press  
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Emergency officials say a 19-year-old Haitian schoolgirl died of a heart attack after students panicked that their school was collapsing.

Civil protection official Jean Edme says a dozen stampeding students were injured in Port-au-Prince's Tabarre district on Wednesday when vibrations from wind or a passing truck frightened them into thinking their school would fall.

Police say Gerline Louis had a heart condition and died at a hospital.

At least two other panics have caused injuries since a school collapse killed nearly 100 students and adults on Nov. 7.

Haitian officials have warned that thousands of poorly built schools, churches and homes could fall.
