Longview ISD releases statement on student death

Longview Independent School District released a statement on Tuesday regarding the death of one of their first grade students.

Aujaylin Johnson, 6, was recovered from Lake O' the Pines on Sunday afternoon, after nearly drowning.

Officials say Aujaylin was underwater for as long as 20 minutes. When the search team found him, Aujaylin was immediately transported to the hospital, and EMS workers said he had a pulse.

Aujaylin was taken off life support on Monday night, and later passed away.

Longview ISD released the following statement Tuesday afternoon:

All of us at Longview ISD are saddened by the tragic loss of Aujaylin Johnson, a 1st grade student at J.L. Everhart, and we pray that his family can find peace. Our thoughts and prayers are also with his classmates and teachers.

Parents of J.L. Everhart students are being informed of Aujaylin's passing, so that they can discuss with their own children. Grief counseling is also being made available to students.

We respectfully ask that our students and staff be allowed to grieve amongst themselves – without on-campus press coverage. We appreciate your cooperation.
