Teen dies during basketball tryouts in Frankfort By Karla Ward of the Lexington Herald-Leader

A 15-year-old freshman at Western Hills High School in Frankfort collapsed and died during basketball tryouts Monday afternoon.

Students had been practicing for just six minutes when Waseeq Shahid collapsed, said Wayne Dominick, communications coordinator for Franklin County Public Schools.

"They were doing some stretches and light exercises," Dominick said. "They said he just collapsed. He just went down."

The incident occurred at 4:06 p.m., and paramedics were on-scene by 4:10 p.m., Dominick said.

Coaches started CPR immediately, he said.

Waseeq was taken to Frankfort Regional Medical Center, which is across the street from the school. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, Dominick said.

Waseeq had been cleared to play basketball after a physical last week, Dominick said.

Waseeq was the son of Iqgal and Rohina Shahid and had attended Bondurant Middle School in Frankfort. He had siblings in first, seventh and eleventh grades, Dominick said. He said Waseeq's brother was also among about 40 students who were participating in the tryouts.

Coach Enoch Welch sent the boys trying out for the team home after talking to them about what had happened, Dominick said. He said tryouts will be suspended for the rest of the week and will resume next week.

Welch declined to comment Monday evening.

Dominick said the family hopes to hold a memorial service in Elizabethtown Tuesday afternoon.

Even tough he is gone, he will not be forgotten. His memorys will stay and his moments on Earth will not be forgotten. There will always be something missing in the Heart. But always think of the good times, think of the times you have spent with him. There's time where everyone has to go. He is in a better place now. May your soul rest in peace Waseeq.

I do not know waseeq, my son Tanner had several classes with him @ bondurant & had 2nd period class with him @ hills. and he said that waseeq was really nice. I just wanted to let you know that your family will be in our thoughts and prayers in the following days, weeks, months to come. We too know what it feels like to lose a son/brother. (tanners younger brother died in june & he was 2). we know how hard it is to lose someone that you love very much. just remember to keep your faith & let your faith guide you. remember all the good times you have had. & he will ALWAYS live in your hearts. Sounds like Waseeq was a pretty cool guy. & i am sure that he will be greatly missed. again, my thoughts and prayers go out to your family..

Waseeq is my brother. I've known him since he was born, he always played around with me, telling jokes, laughing, making me laugh where ever i go. As a little 1st grader he always told me he made up what he wants to be..he said he wanted to be an NBA player. He stuck by that principle from the beginning till the end. God took his life away on a basketball court, i realized thats a very great blessing, he always talked about NBA. i Always will remember your smile, your jokes, your social behaviors how u get everyone around u involved. May God bless you Waseeq, and grant him the highest place in heaven.

Please know that your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Waseeq was a student in my Language Arts class during his 8th grade year at Bondurant. He was an absolute pleasure to have in class each and every day. His smile would light up the room and he was so kind and caring towards everyone around him. He was one of those kids that always gave his 110% best towards his every endeavor. I know he is an angel in Heaven now. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family.

You are missed by many, Waseeq.

Waseeq was a great person. He was always very jolly and never seemed to be shy when I talked to him. He enlightened every person around him. Our community seems to be lacking without his presence. He will truly be missed. My prayers are going out to Muqeet, Abaiz, Fawaz, and the rest of the Shahid family. Stay strong and be courageous. My family and I will always be here for you. If you need anything, just give us a call.

Waseeq, I heard from my brother Ali that you were such an amazing person. I have also heard from other people about your wonderful personality, Mashallah. You've become a role model for all of us, and Inshallah, you will get countless sawaab for the inspiration you had, and continue to have, on people. The greatest comfort that your family and friends can get, I think, is by knowing that you're good to go, you're all set for an easy entry into Jannah, Inshallah. We will all continue to pray for you and your family. May Allah bless you all and provide guidance, comfort, and healing, Ameen. Rest in peace. And stay strong, Shahid family!

Hey Muqeet. Abais and Fawaz
This is a true story for you. I believe you know Jahangir khan. All time great squash player of Pakistan.
Torsam khan was his older brother. In 1979, Torsam reached a career-high ranking of World No. 13 but at the age of 27 and seemingly in excellent health, Torsam suffered a heart attack during a tournament match in Australia and died suddenly in the court. His death profoundly affected his younger brother Jahangir, who was aged 15 at the time. Jahangir considered quitting the game himself immediately after Torsam's death, but instead decided to pursue a career in the sport as a tribute to his brother and then you know. Jahangir went on to achieve unprecedented heights within the game including a 555 match unbeaten streak between 1981 and 1986 and won 7 consecutive British Open Championship, The biggest event for squash. He remains Ranked World No.1 for these eight years.
So come on Guys. Best tribute to your sweetest and innocent brother is to make his dreaam a reality.
Tund-e-bad-e-mukhalif sai na ghabra aiy uqab

(Don’t be scared by the opposite winds because it only exist to make you more stronger). Allah bless all of you and give strength to your family.
You all will always be in our prayers

Waseeq, I know you loved your friends, and even more your great passion for basketball. Everyday in Social Studies last year, you would tell me something about basketball, that I didn't really understand. But what I do understand is what a great person you were, and how we will always need more people like you in the world. You didn't really know how many friends you really had, I think. You were a great friend. Your smile and laugh will be missed through the hallways at WHHS, and I will be praying for you, and your family through this difficult time. I love you Waseeq, like we all did... : )

This is a photo he took for his poetry journal.
He was my brother. I just don't know how to put this. He was determined for NBA, he wanted to go there from the start. He used to watch almost every game, told alot of people about NBA. I was sure he was goin to make it. He always played basketball and whenever someone asked what he was going to do in the future he used to say NBA. When i heard this news i couldn't believe a single thing i heard. He used to be the joking type. He used to joke around with anyone. He made friends so fast. One day i remembered him tell what would you do if one of your brothers died. I said i dont know. It's just so sad just thinking about this. May God bless you and may God help you find the way to hevean.

Waseeq...I still remember the first time you, Muqeet, Abaiz, and Fawoz came over to our house - we had so much fun and that's when I realized that your family is made up of the most honest, loving, nice, and caring people I know.

I'm continually keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers, not being able to imagine losing my own brother.

I know that, in the end, we'll all meet again and you and your family will be reunited.

Im astonished as to his sudden dissapearrance. Hour after hour I wait for my best friend to get back on his favorite computer game and tell me how him and basketball went. We both loved basketball. Couldn't stop debating about who was right or wrong. Ive known him for over 4 years going on 5 and I will never forget him. To be honest this is the first real friend Ive ever lost and to see him go like this truly makes me cry. Ultimately I know where you are and imma be thinking about you everytime I play that game. Like I always say when we get off the game...PEACE AND LOVE.

Waseeq was a wonderful person who enlightened everyone he spoke to. He smiled no matter what you had to say, friend or foe. He had a heart full of love, and a soul full of hope and joy. His dream was to go to the NBA. I remember everyday on the bus we would engage into conversations about who his favorite player was and so on. Thats when i knew Waseeq had a love for the sport of basketball. He lived, and died to through the sport. Muqeet, Abez, Fawwaz; Keep strong for i know how hard it is to feel a gap in your heart. I know the special bond you have between your own blood brother. That of which can never be broken. You guys will always love and cherrish the memories you have had with him. Keep your perserveriance through with your loss and let it egnight your passion for anything you do in life. Have faith Shahid family. Your in my prayers

Waseeq has a made it to NBA , I used to joke with him that one day when you become a NBA player do get me the front row seats. Some how he made it to our ultimate destination earlier then his time. Death of such a young boy --remind us that we all have to go back, when and where only God knows but lets appreciate everything around us, which we take it for granted and live in peace.

May God make it easy for everybody in his family.

Waseeq was a terrific kid and great friend to my son and my family. He and his brothers were always a pleasure to have in our home. We will never forget him and will always be comforted by the memories of his bright and sunny personality.

This year was my first year going to Waseeq's school but just in this time period, i have felt like he has been my friend my whole life. I remember how he was always quite in class but when we got into the hallway he never failed to make me laugh. My heart goes out to his friends and family. He is in a way better place now. Rest in Peace. He will forever be in my prayers.

I remeber when i first met Waseeq in 3rd grade. A quiet but friendly guy, and also very tall. He will always have a place in my heart because of his kindness and good heart. God blees the Shahid family.

We didn't know Waseeq but he was a part of our school, a fellow wolverine. We have sympathy for the Shahid family, and today we empathize with them over their loss.
