VIRGINIA GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) – A carnival worker has died, Wednesday, at a Virginia Gardens Catholic school.
According to Archdiocese of Miami, the carnival worker was found dead in a trailer at Blessed Trinity Catholic School, near Curtiss Parkway. The cause of death has yet to be confirmed, Archdiocese of Miami said, but parents were notified.
Mary Ross Agosta, Director of Communications for the Archdiocese of Miami, spoke to 7News regarding the death. “The children are fine,” she said. “School is continuing as normal. At no time were any of the children exposed to the excitement to the body that was found because the body was found inside a trailer.”
Agosta added that children whose classes faced the alley of the parking lot were removed and shielded from police activity.
Pick-up is scheduled for its usual time, Agosta said, but the location has been changed. “Parents have been notified what exit they can pick their children up,” she said.
The carnival on the school’s campus is expected to open on Thursday.
Officials have begun a death investigation.
