An unidentified 10-year-old boy from Huntington died Saturday at Camp Yawgoog, a Boy Scout camp in Rhode Island, police said Saturday.
The Providence Journal said that rescue crews were summoned to the camp at 7:02 a.m. and told the boy was possibly in cardiac arrest, acting Police Chief William A. McGarry of the Hopkinton Police Department said.
They attempted CPR, but the boy died at the camp, the chief said. The chief said police believe he died from another medical condition, the Journal reported.
A Providence TV station said the boy died in his sleep.
The state Medical Examiner's Office is expected to determine the cause of death, the chief said. Foul play is not suspected.
About 1,000 boys were at the camp this week. Troop 78 from Huntington had been scheduled to finish its weeklong stay on Sunday.
Members of his family were traveling to the camp on Saturday, McGarry said.
Yawgoog Scout Reservation is a part of the Narragansett Council, Boy Scouts of America in Rockville.
