  • Student dies after choking during pancake-eating competition

A Sacred Heart University sorority girl died this weekend, three days after choking during a Greek life pancake-eating competition at the Fairfield, Connecticut school.

Officers had to take food out of her mouth after unsuccessfully trying the Heimlich maneuver, according to Kalamareas.

Nelson, who hailed from Clark, New Jersey, was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport and subsequently transferred to Columbia University Medical Center in NY, where she died on Sunday.

Sunday night, a candlelit vigil was held on the Sacred Heart campus and the church held a mass in Caitlin's honor. "May Caitlin's family be wrapped in God's love and have faith they will meet again. And then she began CPR, basic life support, until officers showed up less than two minutes after the emergency call was made by one of the nursing students".

"While on Campus last week for their Bergoglio Lecture Series, I was greatly moved by the warmth of the Sacred Heart community, most especially their interest in faith and concern for one another", Caggiano wrote in the post. "It is so terribly heartbreaking".

Nelson's father, James, was Port Authority police officer who died during the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center when Caitlin was just five years old, the Connecticut Post reports. He was 40 years old.

"We. Are. SHU", the university tweeted, along with a picture of the vigil.

The 18-year vet was survived by his wife, two daughters, brother and sister, according to Officer Down Memorial Page.

"The SHU flag has been lowered to half-staff in Caitlin's memory", the statement said. Our hearts are broken for our SHU FAMILY, our daughters friends in KD with Caitlin, the professors, the administration and our wonderful SHU leadership and all you touched her at SHU.

According to her LinkedIn page, Caitlin was certified in youth mental health first aid and volunteered at the Resiliency Center of Newtown, a nonprofit group that provides free counseling and other services to people affected by the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 children and six educators.
