Grief counselors spent Thursday morning on the Madera South High School campus, helping students cope with the death of their classmate.
Administrators say 14–year–old Graciela Martinez rode to school with her brother, also a student, Wednesday morning. He went into classes early, and police say she stayed behind in the car.
Her brother returned to his car after school, and found his sister inside.
He drove her to Madera Community Hospital, where staff members alerted police.
At this stage, officers say her death appears to be heat-related.
