Marietta, GA (CBS46)- Family and friends are mourning the loss of a Cobb County teenager who collapsed and died after attending a Boy Scouts lock-in event.
Vaughn Fletcher, a Marietta High School honor student, died Sunday at Egleston Hospital from complications after collapsing last week during the trip. Family members say Vaughn had a history of heart problems from a young age and had undergone several surgeries.
Vaughn is being remembered as a musical and positive person.
"He was always just up, chipper, glad to help, glad to do his part, smart kid, just super," said his scoutmaster Darden Borders.
Borders also tells CBS46 News that he's proud of how the troops responded and were able to use their First Aid training when it was needed the most.
