It was a tragic weekend for students of Maine's Lake Region High School as one of their fellow classmates died during a school camping trip.

According to WGME 13, students were on a school camping trip over the weekend when one of the students, a senior at Lake Region High School in Naples, suffered a medical emergency. The emergency took place at Baldface Mountain in New Hampshire.

Carroll County Sheriff's Office was called at about 7 PM Sunday evening and told to respond to the Slippery Brook Trail in Chatham. Lifelight was called in to assist in the response but sadly the male student died at the scene.

Lake Region superintendent, Alan Smith, says the students were on their senior camping trip which is something the school facilitates each year. Smith said the school is planning a memorial service for the student and that grief counselors and service dogs were at the school on Tuesday.
