Child mourned after sudden death

Posted: Updated:

Friends and family are mourning a Chester sixth-grader who died suddenly over the weekend.

Early Sunday morning, Alyssa Barberi's parents called 911, and said their daughter was having trouble breathing. The 11-year-old was taken to nearby Arden Hill Hospital and died about an hour later.

An autopsy came back inconclusive. Police officials say there is no criminal investigation into the sixth-grader's death, and say it does not appear suspicious.
