13-Year-Old Broadway Star Dies of Massive Asthma Attack

<div>Broadway star Laurel Griggs passed away from a fatal asthma attack on Tuesday night, her parents recently revealed. <i>Page Six</i> reports that the young actress was working on homework in her home when she told her father, “I don’t think I feel so good.” Adds dad Andy Griggs, “[That] immediately set off all the alarms in my head.” Soon afterwards, she was transported to the hospital in a police vehicle as first responders attempted to administer CPR. She passed away about four hours later. Griggs was born with asthma and had a serious attack about three years ago. She debuted on Broadway opposite Scarlett Johansson in <i>Cat on a Hot Tin Roof </i>and performed in hundreds of Broadway shows. She also went to school full-time; just days before her death, she’d auditioned for the famed Laguardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts. Broadway’s lights were dimmed in her honor on Friday night. “We are heartbroken and devastated…We will never forget this sweet, talented, young soul,” said one fellow actor.</div>
