Middle schooler dies from ankle injury

Alec Mounkes, a middle schooler from Lyndon, Kan., recently passed away. He  died on Thursday, October 27 around 5 p.m.

Alec was just your average teenage boy that loved life and playing sports. He had been playing on his school football team.

Alec suffered from a sprained ankle on October 6 and was told to keep weight off of it due to the injury.

On October 11, his ankle had worsened. From school he was rushed to the Topeka hospital. He had developed blood clots and had gone into cardiac arrest.

He was immediately flown to Children’s Mercy Hospital here in Kansas City, where he had to receive amputations on both of his legs. It was a drastic attempt to save his life.

Alec’s classmates have spilled out their hearts writing notes and drawing pictures to honor him on the sidewalks.

“Alec is a great kid from a great family. We miss him dearly. He’s a great kid and it’s a loss, it’s a tragedy and we feel badly about it,” Spencer, The Superintendent at Lyndon Middle School Lions, said.
