A 10th-grade student at Iowa Mennonite School has died after an accident on Friday, Dec. 1, at the school.

According to a Johnson County sheriff’s press release, on Dec. 1 at 8:18 p.m., the Joint Emergency Communication Center received a report of a subject that fell off a ladder at the Iowa Mennonite School. Emergency personal arrived and found a girl that had fallen from a ladder.

Teresa Cardenas, 15, died after the fall that happened during an all-school social on Friday night. Emergency crews worked to revive her but were unable to. Cardenas was a resident of Iowa City.

“This is a devastating loss for Teresa’s family and the community,” Steve Schrag, principal at Iowa Mennonite, said in a press release. “The IMS community gathered Saturday morning with pastors and counselors available. IMS has sought additional resources from both private counselors as well as the Critical Incident Stress Management Team.”
