A 17-year-old student at Naperville North High School collapsed and died suddenly from a suspected heart attack during a choir rehearsal on Friday, according to reports.
Daniel Moshi of Franklin Park collapsed and died while practicing on stage on Friday evening.
“Naperville fire officials confirmed they responded to the high school around 6:18 p.m. for an “unconscious” 17-year-old boy. When fire officials arrived, bystanders were performing CPR on the teen, who was taken to Edwards Medical Center, where he died.”
“Naperville North was hosting the All-State Honors Show Choir for the Illinois American Choral Directors Association over the weekend, where Moshi was performing,” the outlet added.
The DuPage County coroner’s office said the cause of death is unknown, and an investigation is ongoing.
“We sadly want to announce of suddenly passing of one of our wonderful young boys Daniel Loden Moshi, son of Loden and Caroline Moshi, and Grandson of my late brother-in-law Belis and late Elen Moshi Shlaimon,” Sarhadoon Ibrahim wrote on Facebook.
“He was a choir member and singing to Lord he will be missed from all who have chance to know him he was humble, active and loved by all. Daniel you will be missed from all family members and friends.”
Sarhadoon said heart attack was the likely cause of Moshi’s death.
Suspected heart attack
“[He] suddenly collapsed while he was practicing on stage – until now no real reason – just like a heart attack,” Sarhadoon said.
Friends and members of the community rushed to pay their respects to Moshi:
“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear son Daniel Moshi, Saint Andrews choir alto lead singer. For a community of believers to lose a faithful member is difficult and a test of faith; for believing parents to lose a faithful child is beyond comprehension and stretches our limited senses of understanding. Daniel may not be with us on earth any more and no “word” can totally ease the pain of the loss, but the loss of Daniel on earth is assured to us to be singing to the the “Word” in Paradise,” Saint Andrews Assyrian Church wrote on Facebook.
“Last night we lost one of the best members of our church’s youth Daniel Moshi. It’s very hard losing such a smart educated polite young person. Daniel had an angelic voice and I enjoyed every time hearing him while he was performing at St. Andrew’s Church. The heaven gained an angel today. You will be missed dearly. My deepest condolences to his parents Carolyn & Loden Moshi.Keep singing with angels Dany! Rest in heaven,” Hani KhiziranRealtor said.
“My dear friend Karolin Moshi and her family are in need of prayers over the devastating and unexpected passing of her sweet son, Daniel. The community is heart broken over the news that put us all into shock. May Daniel rest in paradise as he will be missed by many,” Karo Mikhail wrote.
