LAKE ELSINORE, CALIFORNIA: A Canyon Lake Middle School student collapsed and eventually died after being reported unresponsive. Yahshua Robinson was at the school and joined his classmates during a physical education class.

The incident took place on Tuesday, August 29, as per KTLA. The family has also set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for his funeral proceedings.

What did the family say about his death?

Despite the response and care of medical professionals, Yahshua tragically "succumbed to cardiac arrest at the hospital," read a message on its page.

In the message, Yahshua's aunt Amarna Plummer added that the family believes the tragedy was "brought about by the sweltering heat." According to NBC Los Angeles, the temperature at the time when the 12-year-old boy collapsed was around the 90-degree range.

“The void Yahshua leaves behind is profound. Janae & Eric Robinson and their three other children are trying to come to terms with this devastating reality. The agony of losing a child is indescribable, and as we wait with heavy hearts for the autopsy results, we are reminded of the unpredictability of life,” added Plummer.

The outlet reports that Yahshua was asked to run on the field for not wearing the proper clothes.

"He was reaching out to the teacher, saying he needed some water. He said he couldn't breathe. He was telling the kids this,” Plummer added.

What did the school district say about the boy's death?

Lake Elsinore Unified School District spokesperson refused to provide specific details about Yahshua’s death.

“In this difficult moment, we are deeply saddened to confirm the passing of one of our students due to a medical emergency on one of our LEUSD campuses," the statement read.

"Our hearts are with the family, friends, and our school community. This is a time of great sorrow for the entire community."

“We know that Yahshua was loved by many, and we appreciate everyone who is helping us to grieve his loss," the family said in a statement.

"We are still in shock and disbelief over Yahshua’s death. He was a bright, talented, and loving child who had a bright future ahead of him. We are struggling to understand why this happened," they added in the statement.

Yahshua is survived by his parents, Janae and Eric Robinson, and his three siblings.

The fundraising platform appealed for support, "Whether large or small, every contribution will serve as a testament to Yahshua's cherished memory and the impact he made in his short time with us."
