Champion Cyclist Beyonce Ross died just after 2am today without regaining consciousness at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

Ross was hospitalized since Thursday last after she experienced a seizure in the late afternoon. Her family had hoped for a miracle.

Ross, 15, fell ill in February and then in March, she was diagnosed with a tumor, in the center of her brain.

Just a few days ago, the teenager discovered that the tumor was not cancerous, bringing some amount of relief to herself and family.

Her mother, Yonette Clarke told News Room that attempts were being made to take her daughter overseas to surgically remove the tumor since the operation cannot be done locally. 

Ross, a student of the Lower Corentyne Secondary School in Rose Hall, had won three gold medals at the National School Cycling Championships in October 2017.

 

News Room will provide a detailed story later.
