A senior cheerleader at North Little Rock High School, Victoria Moody,18, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, Fox16 reported.
Moody’s older sister, Brooke McCarty, claims that her sibling was in good health up until Sunday night, when their father, Brian Moody, took her to the hospital saying that she wasn’t feeling well.
According to her sister, Victoria’s untimely death was caused by a pulmonary embolism.
“She apparently had a pulmonary embolism that was just too far advanced to stop it,” said McCarthy.
According to Hopkins Medicine, a pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blood clot that develops in a blood vessel in the body (often in the leg). It then travels to a lung artery where it suddenly blocks blood flow.
