What a tragedy- First a car accident has a Forest Hills East student in critical condition - and now this death. Of course their families are hit with this tragedy - This has been a really difficult year for Forest Hills Seniors and staff. Our hopes and prayers are with all of you.

I send my prayers and sympathies out to the family at their time of sorrow. It is a tragedy for a young, beautiful woman to die like that. She probably had so much to look forward to in life and suddenly, in an instant, she's gone. I hope that no more deaths happen like this. I once again send my prayers and sympathies to the family. And I also send my best wishes and prayers to the students of Forest Hills Northern and staff members there.

What are you talking about? Facebook is public website that anyone can access with a free account. If the person willingly put the photo on there what's the big deal. Besides, have you taken a look at wood tv 8 lately? They have 3 photos... and I'm sure those are all from facebook or myspace.

This is the least thing her family would worry about. Get outta here, go to another forum. This is tragic and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Rest in Peace.

A MUCH better report, courtesy of Wood TV 8.

Sounds like a neat girl. My prayers are with her family. God Bless.

GRAND RAPIDS -- Sara Smajic, a senior at Forest Hills Northern High School, died Monday after fainting at school.

Smajic fainted in theater class and was brought to the school office. Emergency technicians were called to the scene as a precaution, but she lost consciousness again and was rushed to the hospital.

By 4 p.m., the school was notified by the hospital that she passed away.

Students at FHN are devastated, posting pictures and messages on Facebook. They remember Smajic as an outgoing, fun-loving teen who loved journalism, track and musical theater.

Her friends called her a beautiful, amazing person. One friend remembered helping Sara learn English after the Smajic family came to the US from Bosnia. The pair became close friends.

The cause of death isn't yet known. The Kent County Medical Examiners office is doing an autopsy to determine how she died.

Grief counselors will be on hand at the school to help students deal with the loss today.

24 Hour News 8 will follow this story and have more information soon.

My prayers go out to the family. Wzzm, this is a serious report and you can't even getting your wording right. It's "cause" of death not "caused." Respect the family and fix your fast editing (or lack thereof)

You're an idiot. It's nice to be able to associate her beautiful face with my prayers for her, her family, and her friends.
